Mumbai: India Television industry’s veteran actress Kamya Punjabi is one person who is not afraid to express her thoughts in public. Known for not mincing her words, Kamya took to Instagram to show her solidarity with the women-centric, rebellious film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ in the most explosive way imaginable.
In an attempt to break free from the clutches of this society that is allegedly unforgiving towards women, Kamya posted a picture of her bareback, holding the a lipstick. She wrote: They Said that don’t be that woman …The that other woman..the divorced woman .. the single mother woman .. But I am that woman ..Every time I put in my lipstick on, I smile. because I am being true to myself . Whether the world agrees or not I have made my own don’t.. Don’t you.
Recently, she was in the news for releasing an unfinished short film ‘Hum Kuch Keh Naa Sakey’ with the late actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who was close friends with Kamya. The film sums up Pratyusha’s allegedly troubled relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh.
Talking about the short film, which she directed and also acted in (as a narrator), Kamya had earlier told a website, “It's been produced by a common friend of mine and Pratyusha, Neeru Nikhat. She called me a few days ago and said that let's do something about this movie, let's release it online. And I was like Yes, we should." "Whatever we earn from this movie, I will be handing it all over to Pratyusha's parents. So I thought of releasing the movie in a better way since the purpose of the movie is so good. What's there in the movie I would want everyone to see and then tell me about it. We couldn't shoot the entire movie with Pratyusha. The climax part was left and before we could shoot for that, Pratyusha herself got her real life's climax done. We had shot for it almost every night. People need to realise that it is okay to talk about your issues rather going through them alone, I want people to know this.”...
