The Alankrita Shrivastava-directed film under Prakash Jha’s production was denied certification by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for allegedly being “lady oriented” and containing “abusive words”.

When asked about the controversy, SRK said, “You can ask me about the politics in Uttar Pradesh as well after that. I have no idea as I was on holiday. So I don’t know.”

Filmmakers like Kabir Khan, Sudhir Mishra, Neeraj Ghaywan, Farhan Akhtar and others have slammed the decision of CBFC.

Lipstick Under My Burkha! starring Konkona Sensharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra, Plabita Borthakur, Sushant Singh, Vikrant Massey and Shashank Arora was screened at various film festivals and had received overwhelming response.

The film even 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.
