Alankrita Shrivastava’s latest film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ had to cross a lot of hurdles before its release, all thanks to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). According to Pahlaj Nihalani, the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification, the film is too “lady oriented” and “too bold” for the audience.

The censor board made the makers delete almost 27 scenes before giving it a release signal. ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ revolves around the stories of four women from Bhopal, who deal with the taboos of society against their sexual desires. Society has always been biased against women and has always denoted them as the weaker sex. As per the society, women do not have the right to express their sexual needs and desires. If by chance a female tries to cross the limits set by the society then people raise question against her character.

With an intention to spread a similar message among the masses, Alankrita made this meaningful and powerful movie. But, it looks as if people were only interested in the movie’s bold scenes and sexual talks. At least this Journo’s experience says so!



All excited Rachita Prasad, a Mumbai-based journalist, booked her tickets for ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ but returned home with a sickening experience.

No, the movie wasn’t bad! The people who came to watch the movie were unpredictable. Rachita’s horrid experience at a posh, upscale mall will leave you perplexed. The journalist then decided to share her experience on Twitter and people were shocked! Here’s what happened:





Rachita’s experience must have given you goosebumps. But isn’t it saddening to know that people who stay in the city of dreams cannot let women live a life of their dreams?
