FCAT directed CBFC to certify 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' with A certificate

As we know CBFC has refused to certify film "Lipstick Under My Burkha", the filmmaker appealed to The Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) and it has directed the Central Board of Film Certification to grant an ‘A certificate to the fiom. The FCAT has directed to certify film with "voluntary and some additional cuts and deletions".

The FCAT observed the decision of CBFC, "misdirected themselves in denying certification on the ground that the story of the film is women oriented. There cannot be any embargo on a film being women oriented or containing sexual fantasies and expression of the inner desires of women".

 Also FCAT has issued a note which reads as: "As a matter of general approach if the aspect of sexual desires and their expression is sensitively handled without bringing coarseness, vulgarity or obscenity, pandering prurient tendencies, then it is not to be disallowed."

Also the statement read: "We cannot lose sight that there is a thin line between creative and artistic expression being depicted in a natural sex scene. The same can be obliterated if the sexual scenes are continued for a long duration which may not be necessary or integral to the film. Besides, it would then infringe the guidelines requiring such scenes to be kept to the minimum."
