It would be safe to say, the film Lipstick Under My Burkha is winning a box office race with its content and the sheer entertainment it is. The reason why it is considered as success, as it is released after so much controversy, scrutiny, and speculation that it will not survive the week, considering four new films releasing next Filmy Friday. So how far the box office earning graph is going on?
