  Glasgow Film Festival 2017 Award Winner Announced [read more]
  Lipstick Under My Burkha clinches it
  The winner of the third annual Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival has been announced as Alankrita Shrivastava's Lipstick Under My Burkha. Shrivastava was presented with the award by Doctor Who and Broadchurch star David Tennant at the Glasgow Film Theatre before the festival's Closing Gala, the World Premiere of Mad To Be Normal.

Shrivastava and the film gained international attention this week following the decision by India’s Censor Board of Film Certifcation (CBFC) to deny its theatrical release, citing the "lady-orientated" subject matter and "sexual scenes and abusive words".

Lipstick Under My Burkha tells the stories of four Indian women seeking more from life than docile domesticity. Young mother Shirin feels she must hide her professional success from her husband. Ambitious beautician Leela takes the lead with her Muslim boyfriend even as her family arranges her marriage to a nice Hindi boy. College girl Rehana is the Cinderella figure of the quartet whilst the older, irrepressible Auntie Usha sets her sights on a hunky swimming instructor. All of them are freedom fighters against a deeply patriarchal society in this colourful and wildly engaging production.
