Previously, it was assumed that it is a romantic movie with a light- hearted love story in it. But recently, it has come to light that Udta Punjab is about the substance abuse and drug mafia in Punjab. In this respect, the title completely suits the story.
Drug abuse is badly affecting the youth in Punjab and with this movie, director Abhishek Chaubey is presenting this very fact on the silver screen. This movie has stories of four characters from four different perspectives. The movie has a very interesting tagline -‘Drug di Maa di‘-which also point towards the story of the movie.
Drug di Maa di
This movie is co-produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films. This movie is written and directed by Abhishek Chaubey. The main leads in the movie are:
Kareena Kapoor Khan who is playing the role of a doctor named Preet Sahani
Shahid Kapoor who brings life to the character of Punjabi Rockstar named Tommy Singh
Diljit Dosanjh as a cop named Sartaj Singh Dhillon
Alia Bhatt as Kumari Pinky, a Bihari migrant girl
Though both Kareena and Shahid , ex-lovers, are working in the same movie again after so many years but they are not sharing even a single screen together. Kareena has been paired with Diljit whereas Shahid with Alia Bhatt.
The first look of all the leads has been unveiled now.
Today, the makers of the movie unveiled the first look of Alia Bhatt. She is looking scruffy and grubby wearing a red magenta suit. She is playing a role a Bihari migrant in the movie.

Before this, Shahid Kapoor has shared his very first look from the movie on Twitter. As he is playing a role of rockstar, it was must for him to have long hair. In the poster, he is displaying long hair, beard and tattoos all over his body posing rock horns. This is one of a unique role that Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing in it. I bet, you won’t be able to forget this character soon after watching it.

If we talk about Punjabi Singer-actor, Diljit Dosanjh, it is his first Bollywood movie. In the first look, Diljit is spotted wearing cop uniform. He is cast opposite to Kareena Kapoor Khan in it. It will be nice to see him romancing with her.
