'Lipstick Under My Burkha' finally gets a release date

6th June 2017

The multi-starrer film 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' directed by Alankrita Shrivastava didn't get the CBFC certificate as it was too "lady oriented", and contained "audio pornography." After fighting all the possible battles, the film is finally releasing on July 28, 2017. Ekta Kapoor who is one of the producers of the film announced the news on her Instagram by saying, "Finally after #LSD a film came my way that doesn't shy away from sex or sexuality yet is neither preachy nor exploitative!! Blown by this edgy credible delicious piece of cinema #ALT movies PROUDLY presents LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA! Releasing 28 th July in the THEATRES (finally 👀😂) ! 💄💄💄💄💄💄💄💋."

Prakash Jha, who is also producing the film said, "Ekta is someone who has always done some path breaking work and with a lot of her women characters, she’s inverted the power structure on television, making the woman protagonist the epicentre of power. She’s a strong and dynamic studio head. In that sense she has a strong feminist pulse and I was very keen to know what she felt. And as soon as she finished watching it, she told me she and her studio wanted to present it to a much wider audience. I thought it would be fantastic for the film."

"I entered the screening knowing I was going to watch a well appreciated film, but not only was I totally blown away by the content, I felt it was both credible and entertaining. Rarely do we have credible entertainers that stimulate the mind and are peppered with spunk and humour. Lipstick under my burkha, signifies a rebellion of the mind and is a film that celebrates women and their sexuality."

So now, catch 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' on July 28, 2017 in theatres near you.
