After a long battle, the makers of the film Lipstick Under My Burkha can finally release the film in theaters.

The Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) apparently directed the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to grant an ‘A certificate to the film. Earlier this year, the CBFC has denied giving pass the film for its sexual content.

However, the FCAT has directed the filmmakers that they will be getting the certificate only after "voluntary and some additional cuts and deletions".

Censor board had denied passing the film because it contained sexual scenes and abusive words.

Director Alankrita Srivastava and producer Prakash Jha filed an appeal in the FCAT. FCAT headed by Manmohan Sarin observed that the examining and revising committees of the CBFC may have misdirected themselves and denied certification on the ground that the story of the film is women-oriented.


The film, starring Konkona Sen Sharma and Ratna Pathak Shah, features secret lives of four women of different backgrounds and ages in a small town in India as they search for different kinds of freedom.
