Real & Liberating, 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' Is For EVERY Girl
“Lipstick Under My Burkha” - The first time I read this line on the internet, I was intrigued. I wanted to know what this was about and so I found this amazing trailer of an upcoming film. Yes, Lipstick Under My Burkha is the name of the film. Starring Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur, this movie shows lives of four different women wanting unconventional things from life. They live in small parts of India and the journey of how they secretly find the courage to chase their dreams is what this movie is all about. I often feel that people in our country are still not open to accepting women taking charge of their own lives. In a patriarchal world like ours, a movie like this is the need of hour. Kudos to Alankrita Shrivastava, the director of of the film, for coming up with a story that every Indian woman will be able to relate to. We are eagerly waiting for this film to release! Till then, watch the trailer.
