Set in the crowded by-lanes of small town India, Lipstick Under My Burkha chronicles the secret lives of four women in search of a little freedom.
Though stifled and trapped by conservative conventions, these four women claim their desires through small acts of courage and stealthy rebellion.
Based in Mumbai, India, Aahana Kumra is a popular theatre, Bollywood and television actress. She plays one of the four leading ladies in Lipstick Under My Burkha, one of the most discussed films of 2017 – highly controversial and initially banned in India despite winning multiple awards at international film festivals.
Audaciously outspoken about women's sexual desires and fantasies, both visually and verbally.Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
