Women-centric films often endevour to depict the real woman and her experiences that derive her strengths and weaknesses. However, only a handful of films are able to portray the importance and the spirit of woman aptly.


After Lipstick Under My Burkha, Alankrita Shrivastava has reunited with Ekta Kapoor yet again for another female-centric film. According to the latest reports, Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sensharma have been roped in to play the female protagonists in the film.


A source close to the development said to a leading tabloid, "It's about two women and their coming-of-age story which is set in Greater Noida. When Alankrita narrated the script, both Bhumi and Konkona loved it and immediately agreed to be a part of the project. They are presently prepping for the film and will start shooting from next week."


About working with Ekta Kapoor again for another female-centric film, Alankrita said, "Ekta has a lot of courage to take risks and she is the right person for the kind of films I make. I'm excited about exploring the lives of my new protagonists and the roles women have in the changing India of today. The future is female, not just in India but the world over."


As Lipstick Under My Burkha soared success heights, the expectation for her another directorial have risen. About the same, Alankrita said, "It's daunting because you don't know what preconceived ideas people may have after Lipstick... I like to work with a blank slate. The journey of my debut film was intense but now it's over."
