Feminist drama ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ has been cleared for a theatrical release in India after the country's Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), decided that the film can be issued an adult certificate, equivalent to an NC-17 rating.

"I am very happy for the film, after our battle with censorship, 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' cleared with A certificate and will be released soon," said producer of the film Prakash Jha and added , “Nothing has been asked from the film to be deleted except 10 seconds here or there. Otherwise it’s a complete reversal of the decision of CBFC and one is happy and confident that you can talk or speak and make such films.”

"We submitted the same film to both the certification bodies. We did exactly what they wanted. In fact, we just reduced some sexually intimate scenes by a few seconds,” said Alankrita Shrivastava, the director of the film.

"CBFC never asked for any cuts, they just refused to certify the film. But we are happy that we got so much of support for our film from the women of India," she added.
