Lipstick under my Burkha is all set to release on July 21
The movie Lipstick under My Burkha, produced by Prakash Jha and directed by Alankrita Shrivastava is a call for gender equality from our so called society. And the film even before its release is breaking the internet. What all will happen when a woman will stand up for her rights? Well, all your queries will be answered on July 21, when the film will release.
Ekta Kapoor on being asked about the reactions and censor said, “The fight is much bigger. Censor board just stops the film but the ideology we are talking about is to be combat at various levels by various women. I am sure that it is entertaining enough that everyone can go to the theaters and have a blast. So it’s not about the censor board but the subtle biased behavior that we encounter every day.”
The daily soap queen further added, “This movie is so amazing that 11 awards is just a start and it would be really unfair if women of our country don’t get to watch the film. And not only women, it is equally important for men to watch it.”
Prakash Jha on being asked about the film said, “People say nothing will be changed even after we make such films because men are like that only and we can’t change them but at least we can talk and make them realize that what they are doing is wrong, and we should not stop banging the doors of the society and keep talking about such issues.” On being asked about the title he said, “Burkha is a symbol of restrictions and lipstick is an urge to be free. So burkha is our society and lipstick is the dream and aspiration of women.”
Ratna Pathak along with Konkona Sen are coming to break all the gender stereotypes. This July 21 get ready for a blast!
