Crossing several hurdles posed by top forces in Central Censor Board, the film 'Udta Punjab' was actually slated to hit the screens tomorrow. At a time when big producers team of Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Aman Gill, Vikas Bahl and Sameer Nair were happy to see their 'Udta Punjab' in theaters from tomorrow, here comes the biggest shocker.
Much before the release time, high definition copy of 'Udta Punjab' is leaked online and millions have already watched it. In fact, the Censor Board controversy helped film to make it very big and trade sources expected a massive opening. Now, the top notch quality print available on internet is a big upset.
It should now be seen how far this leakage will hamper the opening revenues because the pirated links have spread all across internet and it's hard to control the damage. Even if makers succeed in removing few links, it may not be of much use. Anyways, that's a very big loss for 'Udta Punjab.' Makers have now approached Cyber Crime Cell. Let's wait for more updates.
