The movie, which will delve into the lives of two women, is cur­rently in the script­ing stage with cast­ing un­der­way.

“Alankrita’s style of film­mak­ing is bold, en­ter­tain­ing and asks all the right ques­tions to our so­ci­ety. I’m only too glad we’re re­unit­ing to tell some more path­break­ing and hugely en­ter­tain­ing sto­ries to­gether. The Lip­stick re­bel­lion thus con­tin­ues!” Ekta said in a state­ment.

Alankrita also con­firmed the news and said she is happy to have found a brave pre­sen­ter in the pro­ducer. “I’m re­ally ex­cited about col­lab­o­rat­ing with Ekta Kapoor and Balaji for my next film. I think it needs courage and a cer­tain risk-taking abil­ity to back films like the ones I want to make.

The fu­ture is fe­male, and I think more women col­lab­o­rat­ing is the change that we need to see. Not just in In­dia, but the world over,” the direc­tor said.

LOS AN­GE­LES: Ag­y­ness Deyn says there is “no chance” that she would swap act­ing for mod­el­ling as she has never re­gret­ted the move the other way. Deyn is cur­rently seen in TV se­ries ‘Hard Sun’, and in an in­ter­view to Ra­dio Times mag­a­zine, she was asked if she would swap act­ing for fash­ion, re­ports fe­male­first.co.uk.

She said: “No chance. Do­ing this (the show ‘Hard Sun’) is so phys­i­cal, and so ex­haust­ing, but it’s so alive. I’m liv­ing the whole char­ac­ter, the whole skin of Renko. That’s what’s ex­cit­ing.” Ag­y­ness said mod­el­ling “never felt like re­al­ity” to her. When I stopped mod­el­ling, ev­ery­one was like, ‘Are you f***ing crazy?’ I wanted to dif­fer­en­ti­ate what I wanted to do. It wasn’t about money and it wasn’t about pro­file, it was about ful­fil­ment and learn­ing some­thing and be­ing afraid and get­ting ex­cited.” She felt mod­el­ling re­stricted the way one looks.

“Then you just have to work hard, show up on time, look healthy, not have been out all night... and be nice – but there are so many other vari­ables to be­ing an ac­tor.

The de­tails of the film re­main un­known at this junc­ture. Fea­tur­ing Ratna Pathak Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Ahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur, the CBFC ini­tially re­fused cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to Lip­stick... say­ing the movie was “lady- ori­ented” and had “sex­ual scenes, abu­sive words”.

Later, the FCAT directed the censor board to grant an ‘A’ cer­tifi­cate to the Prakash Jha-pro­duced movie. It re­leased last July. Avengers 4
