The Bombay High Court on Monday overruled the CBFC-recommended 13 cuts to the Bollywood film Udta Punjab and cleared the film for release with one cut and three disclaimers by the filmmakers here.

A division bench comprising Justice S.C. Dharmadhikari and Justice Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi also directed the Central Board of Film Certification to issue an 'A' Certificate to the film which is scheduled for release on Friday.

The court asked the movie makers to cut the scene that involves urination in the film that will be released on June 17.

The court had earlier said the film does not question the "sovereignty or integrity" of India and noted that the film in no way encourages drug use. It had also reminded Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Pahlaj Nihalani that his job is to certify films and not censor them.
