If leaking Udta Punjab online wasn't enough, a small cable TV
operator in Puducherry named 'Shakti Channel' has aired the censor
copy version of Udta Punjab in its entirety.
Bizarre as it may sound, this is just another day in the office
for Shakti Channel as they are known to play pirated versions of
newly released films all throughout the year.
Tamil superstar Suriya Sivakumar, was the first to point out the
misdeeds of Shakti Channel and posted a picture on his Twitter
acocunt and captioned it as "Fight against Piracy!!Spread awareness
that it's a crime!! Yet to release film #killpiracysavecinema
The channel, is owned by a man named Shakti and has been
arrested in the past for airing pirated versions of newly released
films. However, it looks like Mr. Shakti has not mended his ways
and has openly aired Udta Punjab, giving two hoots to the
Udta Punjab, released on June 17, 2016 and we request one and
all to watch the movie only in the theatres.
