The Censor Board had left Prakash Jha's upcoming film Lipstick
Under My Burkha high and dry as they refused to certify it claiming
that it is too "lady oriented" and also called it "pornography".
Outraged and disappointed at CBFC's injustice towards the film,
Prakash Jha screened the movie to the Film Certification Appellate
Tribunal members and revealed that he's positive the tribunal
members will give a supportive judgement. He said,
"We have shown the film to the members of Tribunal. We have made
our submissions and they have said they will let us know their
judgement. I am positive. It is in the hands of Tribunal."
Lipstick Under My Burkha is a film which showcases the
aspirations of women and it also includes sexual aspiration and
abusive words and that has not gone down well with the CBFC and
they outright denied to certify the film. Prakash Jha's film bagged
several awards at International Film Festivals for its bold content
and sadly, it's not been appreciated in its own country.
The film stars Konkona Sen, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra,
Plabita Borthakur, Sushant Singh, Vikrant Massey and Shashank
Arora. Now the fate of the film hangs with the Film Certification
Appellate Tribunal members and we hope they'll do what is
