The film, made under the stewardship of Ishqiya director Abhishek Chaubey, deals with drug trafficking in Punjab. The state goes to polls next year.
Earlier this month, co-producer Vikas Bahl told news agency PTI that the film should be certified A. “This film is adult. We should get an adult certificate. I think everything, if seen in the right context, will get the right judgement,” he said.
