Amidst two big releases at box office this week, Munna Michael and Dunkirk, Balaji Motion Pictures’ Lipstick Under My Burkha has also shined and won the hearts of Indian audience with its rebellious storytelling. Remember, this film has not got only 400 screens yet it has minted a decent money.
Lipstick Under My Burkha has collected 1.22 crore on its opening day. These are really great numbers for a film which has got 1-2 shows per theater and with not much buzz on social media.
It has made its way at box office solely based on the strong content and amazing word of mouth. Even the critics have hailed the film for its bold narrative.
Munna Michael, which has released with 3000 screens have collected 6.65 crore but it has not got much response from multiplexes where Lipstick Under My Burkha is attracting the crowd. The actual competition for this women centric film is Dunkirk as both the films have niche appeal.
‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ is a story of 4 Indian women who dare to chase their dreams and inner desires. It stars Konkona Sensharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra, Plabita Borthakur. It is directed by Alankrita Shrivastava.
