Fed up with censor board banning films: Konkona
Actor Konkona Sen Sharma has slammed the censor board for denying a certificate to her film Lipstick under my Burkha.
The film, directed by Aalnkrita Shrivastava, failed to get a clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for allegedly being "lady oriented" and containing "abusive words."
"It is very important for women to tell women stories and I feel Alankrita has done a wonderful job with Lipstick under my Burkha. I am fed up with the fact that such films are banned and so many other kind of films are not banned.
"No film should be banned. CBFC should just certify films.
We should see all kind of films where women talk about themselves," the actor says.
Konkona was speaking at the 2017 edition of Shabana Azmi's Mijwan Fashion Show, last night. Konkona says it is unfortunate that a film, which has won awards in international film festivals, is facing obstacles in its release.
