Alankrita Shrivastava’s Lipstick Under My Burkha has been setting off ripples ever since wind of its awesomeness reached B-town, long before its actual release in India, which will happen on July 21. As you bide away the days till the film hits theatres, head to Instagram and you’ll find everyone from Bollywood stars to TV heartthrobs all over your feed toting lipsticks and joining the #LipstickRebellion. What’s that, you ask? Well, let’s put it this way – sometimes, a gesture worth one loaded word makes for pictures worth a thousand. Grab a lipstick and join the ranks!
When they tell you you're too thin or too fat, too fair or too dusky, too tall or too petite too glam or too ordinary… you're either too talented, or too intelligent… 🤔 When they ply you with problems Give them a solution…. Tell them to read between the lines Then do it your way and shine! #lipstickundermyburkha #lipstickrebellion
I am terribly fortunate to be surrounded by women who are not just better, stronger, wiser but women who constantly make me want to be a better man/ professional/human. Thanks @gulenaghmakhan for breaking the chain & having me wield this baton (lipstick) of sorts which we collectively as men must take up, show up & be counted. Kudos to @ektaravikapoor & Alankrita for through their work, life & now art have given us this wake up call. . I am determined to never be afraid to speak up. I will not SHUT UP when I need to take a stand. Often men are afraid to speak up. They feel it's not worth risking a mistake and be accused of wrongdoing. Sometimes the worst thing a man can be in our society is wrong. Because it means he’s vulnerable and fallible. We need men who are willing to let go of their sense of authority and embrace fragility. We need men who are used to getting their way, to stop trying to dominate everyone and everything. We need men willing to be humble and courageous at the same time. .. We need men who are going to be compassionate yet willing to stand up. We need men who are going to dedicate themselves to social & even more importantly human revolution, both within themselves and in their everyday interactions and relationships. We need to be proud FEMINIST men not for anybody else but for ourselves. For our collective human race! Can we? #LipstickUnderMyBurkha #MenForLipstick #Lipstickrevolution
