Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Feb. 24 (ANI): Condemning the decision of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for refusing to certify his upcoming Bollywood flick 'Lipstick Under My Burkha', producer Prakash Jha said, "This problem will end only when we will focus on certification rather than censoring the movie." Talking exclusively to ANI, Jha said, "Central Board of Film Certification have certain people, who have their own thought process and they interpret the guidelines differently." "I believe my film is a beautiful story about section of women, who feel these things but never say something like this. The movie, 'Lipstick Under My Burkha', states how suffocated their lives are and how suffocated their dreams become. It is not about Burkha, but it's a story about Ratna Pathak, who is a Hindu and Ahana, who is also a Hindu," the ace director said. Stating that many issues were raised before the release of 'Rajneeti' and 'Aarakshan', 'Jai Gangaajal', the 64-year-old said, "This time also we will go to tribunal." (ANI)
