The film ‘Udta Punjab’ was referred to a panel called the Revising Committee after the Censor Board refused to release it without cuts. The revising committee has now banned “Punjab” from the title and wants the film to be set in a fictional land, not in the state. Well, I guess people don’t believe in fiction. Here’s the proof:
1. Point to be noted.
Akali & BJP trying to remove Punjab from 'Udta Punjab' but not trying to remove Drugs from Punjab.

2. Gratitude should be the attitude.
Censor Board wants Punjab removed from Udta Punjab.
Thank God these guys weren't around when Bombay to Goa was released.

3. What a filmy state!
After 89 cuts by the Censor board, Udta Punjab is now UP.

5. I salute censor board!
6. ‘Ram Gopal Verma ki Aag’ type suggestion!
For what it actually represents Udta Punjab Is diminutive.. A more truthful and righteous title would be Udta India or Udta World

7. Nothing new, bro. We know that!
Seriously Censoring "Punjab" Shows high levels of immaturity of Bollywood Censor Board. Censor Board is immature not the poeple. Udta Punjab

8. Udta censor board. LOL.
9. Is that all?
Basically, censor board just wants us to buy tickets for Udta Punjab, stand for the national anthem, watch Vicco Vajradanti ads and go home.

10. This foodie is hurt too.
RT Madan_Chikna "Removing Punjab from Udta Punjab is like removing Chole from Chole Bhature."

11. Censor board falling down!
With the decision of removing Punjab from Udta Punjab, you are provoking to make Girta Censor Board next time.
CENSOR DI MAA DI
