Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur are the four protagonists of Lipstick Under My Burkha, whose repressed sexual desires when come to the forefront, turn everyone's world upside down. Of the film's theme, Ekta Kapoor said: "We are so scared to feel, that now it is our second nature to be shy about our sexual fantasies and sexual desires. The film stared at me and asked me a question. As a producer you have made financial decision but it's time that as a woman you made a decision from your heart and I did that."
The Censor Board initially denied certification to Lipstick Under My Burkha, which is produced by Prakash Jha. However, after the intervention of the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), the Censor Board gave up. FCAT directed CBFC to grant an 'A' certificate to Lipstick Under My Burkha along with a few alterations. Lipstick Under My Burkha, which has won several awards in international film circuits, is scheduled to release in India on July 21.
