Here is the shocking and bold trailer of upcoming Hindi film, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’, which was dubbed as the ‘Most Controversial Movie of this Year’ by the Pahlaj Nihalani-headed Central Board of Film Certification. The Board even put in its best efforts to stop the film from releasing in India.
The film is based on the stories of four women who set out on a ‘forbidden’ path to explore their dreams, desires and sexuality. The trailer is loaded with sassy lines, lots of sex, and pretty much everything that can make a conservative man uncomfortable.
After watching the trailer, one would get a vague idea on why the film was dubbed ‘too lady oriented’, ‘contains contagious sexual scenes’, ‘audio pornography’ and ‘unfit for Indian society’ by the Censor Board. “Lipstick Under My Burkha” was initially denied a certification by the Board but the makers managed to get ‘A’ certificate by appealing to the FCAT (Film Certification Appellate Tribunal).
Calling itself a ‘film exploring women empowerment and an attempt to challenge the patriarch society’, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ is slated to hit screens on July 21.
