From Arjun Kapoor to Karan Patel, several celebrities are posting pictures with a lipstick in support of the upcoming film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ which faced issues with the Censor Board. Joining the list of stars was TV actress and former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant Kamya Punjabi who posted a topless photo showing off her bare back while holding a lipstick.
Kamya Punjabi’s photo went viral soon and the actress became a trending topic on social media. She had captioned that image, “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…(sic)”
The snapshot, however, has been deleted from her account. Kamya Punjabi faced flak for apparently backing out from the campaign, but she later took to Twitter to clarify that her account has been hacked.
Kamya Punjabi posted a note captioned, “I did not take off a bare piece of clothing off my back. I bared the innermost corners of my soul…!!! #iknowUknowmypassword #instagram”
Kamya’s note read, “Open the app. Picture has been removed. News articles claiming my unsure mind led to impulsive upload of nudity and hence took it off. Never posted something I never believed in. Never took off something I once posted. Wore my heart and scares on my sleeves with pride. Happy hacking happy hating.”

Alankrita Shrivastava’s ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ has won accolades in festival circuits, but back home, it has been mired in controversy since it first began hitting headlines. Unimpressed by the bold storyline, which follows four women across age groups, who rediscover themselves, as they search for freedom, the Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani had refused to certify the film.
But when the makers approached the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), they got a green signal. The film is releasing on July 21.
