Mumbai: Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor who will be presenting and distributing her forthcoming movie ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ said that the issue showed in the movie is not just CBFC’s issue but this issue is about ideology and about patriarchy.
Explaining about the middle finger shown in the poster of the film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’, Ekta said: “The middle finger is not for the CBFC but pointed towards the patriarchal society that does not let us come out, which compels us to suppress our voice. That is why this issue is not just CBFC’s, this issue is about ideology, it is about patriarchy.”
Interacting with the media, Ekta went on to say: ”There is no problem with CBFC, my problem is with society, which at some point speaks about the same issue in its own ways. If you talk to any girl, you will come to know about five to 10 such incidents happening with her in one day where, being a woman, she has to prove herself a little harder. She has to learn how to combat from a very young age.”
The film, produced by Prakash Jha, was stuck with the CBFC for six months as it revolves around four women and their sexual desires and freedom. But finally, the CBFC has passed the trailer of the film with ‘A’ certificate.
