Chandigarh/ Punjab (April 28, 2013): According to information available through various media sources the much awaited Punjabi movie Sadda Haq will be released on May 10 after the Supreme Court lifted bans by various state governments. The producers of the movie announced reportedly made an announcement that the film will open in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal, UP, Chandigarh and Delhi.
On the other hand Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on said that the state government would abide by the Supreme Court’s decision.
He reprotedly added that if the release of the film led to any law and order problem, the state was committed to maintaining peace at all costs.
“The lifting of the ban is a big relief. This had been our request from the very beginning – we had asked the Punjab Government too to set up a committee of neutral members for the screening of the film and then decide accordingly. On the advice of our counsel, we moved the Supreme Court for a faster judgment, and this is a landmark judgment for any Indian film,” producer Dinesh Sood said.
He was joined by film’s actor-writer-co producer Kuljinder Singh Sidhu, Upwinder Sidhu, Nidhi Sidhu and Surinder Dhalla at a press conference held at Press Club, Chandigarh.
Dinesh Sood added that the Supreme Court of India has directed the Central Board of Film Certification to give the film an “A” Certificate.
“That’s the only change we’ve been asked to follow and we would be happy if we get a U/A certificate. We will come to know about the certification on Monday,” Sood reprotedly added.
“According to the Supreme Court, the film should run and if there is any law and order situation, the state has to address it, not ban the film,” Sood reportedly added.
In the meantime, the film, released worldwide on April 5, is breaking records.
“We have crossed the record collection of two and half lakh pounds and dollars in UK and USA respectively,” the film’s producer stated.
