In a fresh trouble for controversial film ‘Udta Punjab’, A Punjab based NGO, Human Rights Awareness Association, today sought to put on hold the screening of movie as it projected the agrarian state in a bad light.

The NGO told a Supreme Court vacation bench of Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice L.Nageshwara Rao that the Bombay High Court, which on Monday had cleared the screening of the film with one cut, could not have interfered with the decision of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

The Bombay High Court, had directed the producer of ‘Udta Punjab’ to make one cut and insert three disclaimers saying, among others that the film did not promote drugs.
