The recent decision from CBFC about the film Lipstick Under My Burkha came as a shock to many. The movie got the rejection under the background of being a ‘female oriented’ film. A number of filmmakers and others from B Town have spoken against this decision of the Censor board. And the director Kabir Khan is certainly not an exception. When he was asked about the same and he too seemed quite angered with the way the film is being handled by the CBFC.
The director was seen talking about the movie when he said – “It’s a strange situation and problem lies when these kind of incidents are happening regularly. Watching a film is a voluntary act. It is not forced on anyone and two-three people sitting out there in CBFC cannot take decision for the entire society, which is absolutely ridiculous.”
The film is directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, while it talks about the four women, from different sections of society who are seeking freedom and want to pursue their dreams. The film has Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur in key roles along with Sushant Singh, Vikrant Massey, Shashank Arora, Vaibbhav Tatwawdi and Jagat Singh Solanki.
