Amul takes a dig at Pahlaj Nihalani, calls him ‘Ladta Pahlaj’

Udta Punjab censorship row has earned CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani the monikar of “Ladta Pahlaj” in the latest ad of Amul Co-operative Ltd, which is known for its funny takes on issues.

The recent commercial from the Indian dairy brand features caricatures based on the film’s characters — rockstar Tommy Singh (Shahid Kapoor), doctor (Kareena Kapoor Khan), cop (Diljit Dosanjh) and hockey enthusiast (Alia Bhatt) as Amul girl with a pair of scissors moving towards them.

The scissors symbolise the multiple cuts that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has demanded in the movie.

“#Amul Topical: Film on drug menace runs into controversy,” Amul’s twitter page reads.

Udta Punjab, co-produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures, is scheduled to hit theatres on June 17.
