“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
