The Delhi Chief Minister showered praise on ‘Udta Punjab’ and said Badal must watch this ‘powerful film’ to see what they have done to Punjab. “Just watched ‘Udta Punjab’. Very powerful. Badals must watch it to see what they have done to Punjab,” he said in a series of tweets.

After coming under scrutiny of the censor board, ‘Udta Punjab’ finally hit the screens yesterday and the social media was abuzz with views from celebrities and eminent politicians. The CBFC had issued a fresh release certificate to ‘ Udta Punjab’ after the Bombay High Court passed the film with just one cut and three disclaimers. ‘Udta Punjab’, the movie which stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in lead role, has been passed with A-certificate.
