Lipstick Under My Burkha, the film revolving around the secret lives of four women of different age groups, recently got a clearance for release by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) after being banned by the Pahlaj Nihalani-headed Censor Board. The tribunal ordered the makers to delete some scenes and granted it a release with an A certificate. It is now reported that the film will hit the theatres on July 28 after Ekta Kapoor decided to become the pan-India distributor of the Alankrita Srivastava directorial.
According to reports, Ekta was invited by the film’s producer Prakash Jha to watch the film that was denied a theatrical release due to the sexual content.”Not only was I totally blown away by the content but also felt that it showcased a great combination of accountability and entertainment,” the TV czarina told Mumbai Mirror.
Lipstick Under My Burkha signifies a rebellion of the mind and is a film that celebrates women and their sexuality. I believe that this is a story that needs to be told and wanted to put all my muscle behind a film like this,” the producer who brought about a landmark change in television, said. It should be noted that Ekta Kapoor produced Love, Sex Aur Dhokha in 2010 that had bold content.
