SHAHID KAPOOR’S DOG’S NAME IN ‘UDTA PUNJAB’ TO BE CHANGED FROM JACKIE CHAN

72

Out of all the logical and illogical cuts that the Censor Board has ordered in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab‘, on of them is this.

While in the movie Shahid Kapoor’s character Tommy Singh’s pet dog is named Jackie Chan, the Censor Board has asked to change it. Says a source close to the film, “We thought it was a cute homage to Asia’s most popular entertainer. The Board feels otherwise. They’ve asked us to change the dog’s name as they feel it will harm India’s relations with China.”

Censor has also asked to cut short Shahid’s character, Tommy ‘Gabru’ Singh’s abuses and swears. “He hurls ma-bahen gaalis when drugged and when sober. The Board has advised that his character refrains from abusing when sober,” says a source.
