EXCLUSIVE - Aahana Kumra: My role in LIPSTICK is powerful
Aahana Kumra made her television debut with Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘YUDH’ and also bagged a lead role in the TV series Agent Raghav - Crime Branch with Sharad Kelkar. She was also seen hosting few sports shows, and is now seen doing a pivotal role in LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA along with Ratna Pathak Shah, Konkana Sen Sharma, Plabita Borthakur, Vikrant Massey, Sushant Singh Rajput and few more.
The film has been under constant controversy for its bold subject as the film showcases desires and aspirations of women in Indian society, which is considered as taboo in Indian society.
In conversation with Aahana Kumra she spoke in length about why she took this film and who she idolizes and what does power mean to her.
Talking about LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA, Aahana Kumra said, “I have been raised in a very liberal way. In fact for me the most powerful women that I have come across is my mom. She was into police and the entire uniform and the way people would salute her, I was hugely fascinated by her. I love people with power and with power comes responsibilities. My role in the film is also powerful, that’s why I readily accept it.”
“In fact when I heard the script, I told my mom about the subject to which she said, you can go ahead with it. My mom saw the film at one of the film festivals. My father is yet to see the film. I am sure that the film reaches out to masses and is liked by all,” ends Aahana Kumra.
