Much acclaimed ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ has now got a release date in India. The movie features Konkana Sen Sharma and Ratna Pathak Shah in lead roles. ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ is about four ordinary women who aspire for freedom in thoughts and actions.
The movie is globally known for its soberness and at the same time the pinch of freedom.
The movie is already screened at many International Film Festivals and has also bagged some awards!
God knows where is the Hindi Movie Industry heading to. People are liking the stuff produced in India and the critics never like what the producers like!
Producer Prakash Jha says, “Since the CBFC was not issuing the certificate, we had to approach the FCAT again. I’m glad the FCAT has directed the CBFC to issue the certification to the film within the week. We will be announcing the release date soon.”
Says filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava, “These are pressure tactics by the CBFC. They are once again trying to do their best to stifle the voices of women. Because the FCAT has pointed out that the CBFC cannot deny certification to a film because it is “lady-oriented”, the CBFC is just delaying the process. But it has been weeks. And we have been waiting to get the certification in hand so we can announce a release date. We first applied for the censor certificate at the end of December. It is now almost June. Who is going to pay for the delay of five months?”
The movie release on 28th July 2017.
