Makers of “Udta Punjab” lodged a complaint with cyber police alleging that the film was leaked online two days before its release.
Police are now tracing the IP address through which the movie was allegedly uploaded, an official said without elaborating.
“Udta Punjab” was in news after the censor board suggested that the makers alter the movie by 89 cuts. Later, it went to the Revising Committe, which brought it down to 13 cuts. However, the Bombay High Court on Monday gave the drug-themed movie a green signal for release after making just one cut and inserting three disclaimers.
Produced by Anurag Kashyap, the film stars Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh in lead role.
