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 right!
