Chandigarh: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Capt Amarinder Singh announced that he will be releasing the uncensored copies of the movie Udta Punjab in Majitha in Amritsar on June 17. He said that since Majitha like Mexico, is the epicenter of drug trade in Punjab it was decided to release the movie there.
Capt Amarinder has written to the producers of the movie, Anurag Kashyap and Ekta Kapoor urging them to provide the uncensored CDs so that he can release it on the scheduled date to coincide with the worldwide premier of the movie on June 17. The former Chief Minister said that the purpose of releasing the movie in Majitha was to tell the Akalis and the BJP that no matter to what extent they try to go to gag the truth, he will expose it at any cost.
“Not only do we want to highlight the harsh reality of Punjab, but also assert the right to freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by our constitution which is being infringed upon by the BJP at the behest of the Akalis, using the Censor Board”, he said in the letter to the producers. Capt Amarinder also clarified to the producers that all the legal onus of releasing the uncensored CDs of the movie will be on him only. “I guarantee you that I will take the entire responsibility of the legal implications, if any, for releasing the uncensored CDs as we want truth to be told no matter at what price”, he said. .
