Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Anurag Kashyap are riding high on Udta Punjab's success
And why shouldn’t they? The film whose release was a question a few days back has gone on to receive the fifth highest weekend opening of 2016 after Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan being at number 1, multi starrer Housefull 3 at number 2, Akshay Kumar’s Airlift at number 3 and Shraddha Kapoor’s Baaghi at number 4. Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s smiles were proof of the films’ huge success. Both of them have received rave reviews from the critics and the audience for their stupendous acting in the film. While Shahid looked happy, cute and handsome in his ‘gabru’ swag, Alia had a content look on her face. She wore a knee length dress and sneakers with her hair tied back in a pony. Although her look failed to impress us, for once we decided not to comment on it because the girl deserves nothing but applause at the moment.
The film benefitted a lot from the controversy generated by Pahlaj Nihalani, chairman of Censor Board of Film Certification. Ever since he suggested 94 cuts in the movie, Udta Punjab became the talk of the town. The film’s songs and star cast also added to the excitement.
While Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh were absent, big names like Anurag Kashyap, Ekta Kapoor, Vikas Bahl, Satish Kaushik, Kanika Kapoor, Masaba Gupta and Madhu Mantena attended the success bash. Other actors of the movie like Prabhjyot Singh(Balli) and Harpreet Singh (who played Satish Kaushik’s son) were also present.
