Director of upcoming film Lipstick Under My Burkha, Alankrita Shrivastava, has been honored as one of India’s Most Influential Young Indians by GQ.
An elated Alankrita said:
“It is such a huge honor to be part of the GQ Most influential Young Indian awardees. It makes me believe in the power of cinema, and the power of stories. By telling an honest story, one can create so many conversations and debates. Lipstick Under My Burkha has won so many awards across the world, but this award is special because it means that as filmmakers we can perhaps influence society in some small way through our little stories and our unique points of view.”
Lipstick Under My Burkha, featuring Konkona Sensharma, Aahana Kumra, Ratna Pathak Shah and Plabita Borthakur releases July 21, 2017.
The GQ power list includes actors Ranveer Singh, Rajkumar Rao and badminton player PV Sindhu.
