udta punjab movie censor board certificate leaked online on Torrent kickass two days prior to release on 17 friday

Sensational drug based movie UDTA PUNJAB got into yet another trouble (after trouble with Censor Board CBFC approval) when it was reportedly 'leaked' on the internet piracy sites 'Torrents' on Wednesday, 2 days prior to its scheduled release on Friday, 17 June. The producer Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films have filed an official complaint with the Cyber Crime division of Mumbai Police in Bandra. Police have started tracing the IP addresses from which the movie was uploaded on Torrent sites.

Interestingly enough, the leaked version of the movie carries the same 'FOR CENSOR' watermark (as you can see in the pics above) and is an uncut version of the movie 'Udta Punja', which suggest that it might be the same uncut version which was sent to Censor Board CBFC for approval as per the norms. Some believe that it might be the fallout of the Udta Punjab's Censor Board Controversy in which the CBFC suggested 89 cuts in the original version as according to them 'Udta Punjab' was unreasonably showing Punjab in poor light regarding the drugs issue. The matter was finally resolved when The Bombay High Court passed the movie to be released without much change.

Many Bollywood Celebrities have joined a movement to fight against piracy in a twitter trend with hashtag #PiracyDiMaaDi (Ostensibly inspired by the Udta Punjab's tagline 'Drugs Di Maa Di'). Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Chetan Bhagat have all tweeted urging the people to shun piracy and watch the movie in theaters on 17 June. Some have even tweeted that the Pirated version of 'Udta Punjab' available on Torrent is actually a computer virus 'Udta Virus' which will crash the operating system of the downloading device, mobile phones and desktops alike. Show your support to avoid piracy by tweeting with #PiracyDiMaaDi .
