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 #itsnowornever".
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 law.
Udta Punjab, released on June 17, 2016 and we request one and all to watch the movie only in the theatres.
