The Lipstick Rebellion Is Awesome And You Should Join It Too

The most Controversial film of the year is here- Lipstick Under My  Burkha“. The film led to the huge campaign called “The Lipstick Rebellion.

The film that was supposed to be released in January 2017,  but could not just because our very own censor board claimed it to be a too “Female Oriented film. The film, directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and produced by Prakash Jha has already been premiered in India in Mumbai Film Festival in October 2016. Not only this, the film has been premiered throughout the globe and has won many awards for its outstanding performance.

The movie involves a strong star cast. The story revolves around four girls who are in search of the freedom to be themselves. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) refused to certify the film stating that it is too “lady oriented, and their fantasy above life“. They also added that the film has contagious sexual scenes, abusive words, audio pornography, and a bit sensitive touch about one particular section of society.

The campaign began when Ekta Kapoor and the cast started posting their pictures with a lipstick in their hand and a hashtag that says Lipstick Rebellion. The middle finger with their lipsticks is the segment of society which subverts the freedom and independence of women.

Here are some shots that are going viral on Instagram these days to support the movement:
