Veteran actor Anupam Kher today became the latest celebrity to lend support to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in his fight with CBFC over his upcoming film “Udta Punjab”.

The row started after the board allegedly demanded 89 cuts in the film, which is based on the issue of drug abuse in Punjab. The cuts also included removal of the word “Punjab” word from the movie as well its title.

“#CBFC role in #UdtaPunjabControversy is most shocking. Cinema is a reflection of society. Sometimes a portrayal can help bring a change,” Kher, 61, tweeted.

Earlier celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Karan Johar have voiced their support for the team of “Udta Punjab”, saying that there should be certification not censorship.
