The most controversial film of the year 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' will finally come to theatres on July 28. After fighting a long battle, it seems the film may get a good response as the director-producer Ekta Kapoor has now also come on board as a presenter and pan-India distributor of the film.

The film starring Konkona Sen Sharma and Ratna Pathak Shah was denied certification by the CBFC for months till the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) directed the Censor Board to grant an 'A' certificate to the film.

According to media reports when Producer Prakash Jha invited Ekta to watch the movie, she says that she was “blown away”.

Talking to Mumbai Mirror Ekta said, "Not only was I totally blown away by the content but also felt that it showcased a great combination of accountability and entertainment."

"Lipstick Under My Burkha signifies a rebellion of the mind and is a film that celebrates women and their sexuality. I believe that this is a story that needs to be told and wanted to put all my muscle behind a film like this," she added.

"Ekta has done path-breaking work with her women characters. She's inverted the power structure on television, making women characters the epicenter of the power game. She has a strong feminist pulse and I was keen to know what she felt about our film. She told me she wanted to present it through her studio and I thought it would be fantastic for the film," Prakash Jha told Mumbai Mirror.
