Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India],Feb. 24 (ANI): "Indian audience is mature enough and they know what is right and wrong," feels Prakash Jha after his latest Bollywood movie 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' was denied certification by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The ace producer told ANI, "These problems were also raised before the release of 'Rajneeti', 'Aarakshan' and 'Jai Gangaajal'. That time we went to tribunal and this time also we will go to tribunal." "We should view this movie in an open minded way and we should agree that Indian audience is also mature and they know what is right and wrong," he added. Talking further about the repo that he shares with Pahlaj Nihalani, he said, "I share a good repo with Censor Board chairman Pahlaj Nihalani. He is a great producer of our Hindi Film industry and I have no personal issues with him." The film has been directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and produced by Prakash Jha. It stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur in lead roles along with Sushant Singh, Vikrant Massey, Shashank Arora, Vaibbhav Tatwawdi and Jagat Singh Solanki.
