‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ gets a new release date

Mumbai: Alankrita Shrivastava’s “Lipstick Under My Burkha” will arrive in theatres a week before its scheduled release on July 28 to avoid a box office clash with Anees Bazmee’s wedding-comedy “Mubarakan”.

Producer Ekta Kapoor, Sneha Rajani and director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari decided to shuffle the dates of their movies for a smooth performance at the ticket window, according to a release.

“Lipstick Under My Burkha”, presented and distributed by Ekta will now release on July 21 and “Mubarakan”, produced by Rajani, on July 28.

Tiwari’s “Bareilly Ki Barfi”, a romantic comedy, was earlier set to release on July 21 but she and producer Preeti Shahani have decided to postpone the film to the next available date of August 18.
