'Lipstick Under My Burkha' is finally being released after a 3-month battle with the Censor Board after it refused to grant certificate to the movie alleging 'unacceptable and abusive content'
After a long battle, the makers of 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' can now heave a sigh of relief as the film has finally got a release date.
The flick releases on July 28 and Ekta Kapoor is now on-board as presenter and pan-India distributor of the film.
Instead of Balaji Motion Pictures, Ekta Kapoor's other company ALT Entertainment will present the film.
Overruling the censor board's refusal, Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) had issued 'A' or adults certificate to the feminist drama.
The motion picture was in controversy ever since the CBFC refused to grant it a certificate for allegedly containing "lady oriented" and "abusive words".
The cast of the Alankrita Shrivastava-directorial includes Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah and Sonal Jha, among others.
