Muslim outfit asks CBFC to ban 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' Scene from 'Lipstick Under My Burkha'

Bhopal: A Muslim organization here has asked the censor board not to clear the Prakash Jha- produced film Lipstick Under My Burkha.

The film, directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, has already run into trouble as the Central Board of Film Certification has denied it clearance for being "lady-oriented" and containing "abusive words".

"Advisory panel of Madhya Pradesh unit of All India Muslim Tehwar Committee at its meeting here Friday condemned the movie,"the organization's state unit chairman Ausaf Shahmeeri Khurram said.

He alleged that the film was "against the dignity of our women and tenets of Islam" and said the AIMTC had requested the CBFC not to clear it.

The film was shot in Bhopal.

Lipstick Under My Burkha has won the Spirit of Asia Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival and the Oxfam Award for Best Film on Gender Equality at the Mumbai Film Festival. It features Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthaku.
