Mumbai: Bollywood has once again come out in the open against the CBFC's ridiculous certification policies.

The Board's latest victim has been Alankrita Shrivastava’s feminist drama, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha,’ which has been denied a certificate, owing to its 'lady oriented sexual content' and 'abusive dialogues'.

Taking an aim at the CBFC, Shyam Benegal said, "The censor board should certify the film not censor it. I'm against censorship of movies, to stop any film from being released is not justifiable."

Sudhir Mishra questioned the board saying it does not have the right to stop talented and young directors from showcasing their work.

"What right does anybody have to stop imaginative, young talented directors like Alankrita from exhibiting her film. The point is not whether you (CBFC) like it or not... The youth has a right to express themselves," Mishra said.

Bollywood also took to their respective Twitter feeds to comment on the same.
