Trailer of Lipstick under my Burkha storms social media
The film releases on July 21st 2017 in India.
In January 2017, the Central Board of Film Certification refused to certify the film, stating that "The story is lady oriented, their fantasies about life. There are contagious sexual scenes, abusive words, audio pornography and a bit sensitive touch about one particular section of society." The filmmakers appealed this decision to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), which overruled the censor board's ruling, thereby granting the film theatrical release rights. The film will be released with an "A" or adults certificate, equivalent to an NC-17 rating in the United States, with some voluntary edits.
Now, a second trailer of the film has been released, and it carries itself as "The film they didn't want you to see!" Here is the trailer
The film premiered at the Tokyo and Mumbai Film Festivals, where it won the Spirit of Asia Prize and the Oxfam Award for Best Film on Gender Equality. The film will be releasing on July 21st 2017 in India.
