Aamir Khan who turned up for an event last night gave his views on the Udta Punjab vs CBFC row:

It’s very unfortunate. I am pained to see that the film is going through this. According to my knowledge the film is based on drug addiction and it delivers a social message. I don’t think there is anything that should be cut or which the audience should be kept away from seeing. It reflects badly on CBFC and hope the film gets justice at the tribunal. The voice of the film and filmmaker shouldn’t be throttled. They should have a free voice to speak.

Expressing his surprise on the multiple cuts he said that “I believe there were supposed to be changes in CBFC and there won’t be any cuts; only certification as per age group. So it’s strange and shocking to see so many cuts in the film (Udta Punjab). I haven’t seen the film but to hear these things are strange.”
