MP minister Kusum Mahdele defends controversial movie Udta Punjab’s abusive language

Madhya Pradesh Husbandry Minister Kusum Mahdele came out in support of Shahid Kapoor’s latest flick ‘Udta Punjab’, a movie on drug menace in Punjab, that has faced Censor Board wrath for using abusive language.
Mahdele shielded the filmmaker for abusive language used in the movie and said that more abuses are being used in day-to-day language these days.
Lauding the movie in a function organised in Panna, the PHE and Animal Husbandry minister Kusum Mahdele urged one and all to watch the movie and to assimilate the message conveyed by it.
Asked about abusive language in the movie, she said that now-a-days people abuse each other in their normal conversation much more than that of a movie.
The movie amid mixed response was released on June 17. Amid praises for realistic portrayal of drug issue in Punjab, the movie has drawn criticism for its foul language.
One of the senior ministers of Shivraj cabinet, Mahdele had been in controversy in connection with the video clip showing a child being kicked away by her. Early this year, she was in the headlines for her poor remarks on farmers suicides in Madhya Pradesh.
