Internet TV network Netflix will be the exclusive home of critically-acclaimed crime film ‘Udta Punjab’ from 1 January.
‘Udta Punjab’ tells the story of socio-economic decline in the affluent north Indian state of Punjab due to drug abuse. Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh in the lead roles play characters from different walks of life, and the film journeys into the artificial highs and the real lows they face in their fight against drugs.
‘Udta Punjab’ explores that famed Punjabi spirit – you may be knocked down, but this never-say-die attitude means you’ll have the audacity to look drugs in the eye and say, “Drugs di maa di!” Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, ‘Udta Punjab’ is produced by Balaji Motion Pictures in collaboration with Phantom Productions.
