New Delhi: Actress Konkona Sensharma is upset with the decision of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to deny a certificate to her film "Lipstick Under My Burkha".

She feels the CBFC should just give a certificate, and not ban films at all.

"I am really fed up of the fact that these kind of films are banned and so many other kind of films are not. No films should be banned at all," Konkona said.

The film, also starring Ratna Pathak Shah, chronicles the secret lives of four women of different ages in a small town in India as they search for different kinds of freedom.

"Lipstick Under My Burkha" has been deemed too "lady oriented" in content and according to the censor board, it is laced with sexual scenes and abusive words.

Konkona added: "I think the CBFC should just give a certificate. It's important that we watch all kinds of films and it's important that we watch films where women talk about themselves."

The actress talked about the film on show "March on Women", which will air on CNN-News18 on Saturday.

"Lipstick Under My Burkha" won a Gender Equality Award at the Mumbai Film Festival last year and recently won the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival.
