Prakash Jha's Lipstick Under My Burkha has been left high and dry by the CBFC as it rejected the film without certifying it and after the uproar on social media against its decision, the CBFC came out in defence mode by saying that the film's content is unacceptable.
CBFC member Mamta Kale justified the Board's action by saying, "The kind of content and the abusive language they have put in the movie is unacceptable and they should not have done this. Any movie that comes to CBFC, the board sees it really critically. The whole team sits together and analyses the movie and then a decision is taken."
She also said that the film has nothing to do with women empowerment, "Being a woman, you can talk about your sexual rights but you have to keep one thing in mind as to how you are showing that issue. Can families go together to watch such a movie? No, they cannot."
Mamta Kale also advised film-makers to be cautious about the subject they are trying to show on screen and must not put their hands into controversial subjects like Lipstick Under My Burkha. She also believes that a certain section of the society will never accept this type of content.
