Supporting Lipstick Under My Burkha, Arjun Kapoor joins the Lipstick Rebellion showing middle finger to the patriarchy.
Movie Lipstick Under My Burkha has already created many controversies in the B-town before getting cleared from the CBFC. Giving us more to follow the film’s team started ‘Lipstick Rebellion’ on Instagram, which involves holding a lipstick with your middle finger while flipping off. And supporting this trend, Bollywood’s hunk Arjun Kapoor and veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah posed for the pictures holding a lipstick behind their middle fingers.
The Mubarakan actor shared the picture on Instagram and captioned it: “Don’t let anyone tell you what to do. Don’t let anyone tell you how to be. Here’s to all you amazing women out there: make your own rules! Real Men stand with strong women. Since Always. #MenForLipstick #LipstickRebellion”
Shah, who is also the husband of actress Ratna Pathak Shah, featuring in the film, is not on social media. But he alos lent his support to the Lipstick Rebellion. Check out his photo here:
This trend is a clever nod to the iconic poster for the film which was released after Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures turned distributor for the movie. Lipstick Under My Burkha is set for a release on July 21.
Outlining the lives of four women of different age groups exercising free will, Lipstick Under My Burkha has been screened and appreciated at several international film festivals including the Miami International Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival where it was honored with the Spirit of Asia Prize.
