With Konkana Sen Sharma and Prakash Jha’s film “Lipstick Under My Burkha” facing major lashes from CBFC, several names from Bollywood came up and spoke against the ban.
The movie showcases the life of women, their fantasies and how their minds are portrayed. CBFC gave out this reason to reject the censorship:
The story is lady-oriented, their fantasy above life. There are contentious sexual scenes, abusive words, audio pornography and a bit sensitive touch about one particular section of society.
Check out the trailer:
Here is the Twiterrati supporting the movie:

High time the govt takes away powers of the CBFC to ‘censor’ movies. CBFC must only give ratings according to age. #LipstickUnderMyBurkha
