With just 2 weeks to go for the release, Ekta Kapoor’s movie Lipstick Under My Burkha has already taken India by storm. With its bold content and unique cinematic approach, the movie has been a topic of discussion for every Indian, liberal or not.

If that wasn’t enough, Balaji Motion Pictures decided to stir up the topic a little more. Just two days ago they made a social media announcement, asking every Indian citizen, to pose with their lipsticks, speak their mind and join what they would call a Lipstick Rebellion to fight against the many issues they have faced as a woman of Indian origin.

 

The first ones to join in were none other than the leading ladies of the upcoming movie.
