Article 15 box office collection Day 24 - Ayushmann Khurrana starrer “Article 15” gathers momentum on its fourth weekend. The film has performed well at the domestic box office in the early days. But after knocking in the theaters of the other films, the collection of Article 15 went down. Released on June 28, the film is facing a tough competition from Shahid Kapoor's blockbuster Kabir Singh, Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 and the Hollywood much awaited film - The Lion King has been released July 19 which may affect its box office collections.

Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the film's box office collection was at around Rs 42 lakh on Friday, Rs 80 lakh on Saturday and Rs 1.05 crore on Sunday respectively, thus taking the total collection of the film reached up-to the Rs 63.05 crore.

Article 15 has been inspired from true life events, including 2014 Badaun gang rape and 2016 Una flogging incident. Ayushmann Khurrana plays the role of IPS officer Ayan Ranjan in Article 15. Co-produced by Zee Studios and Benaras Media Works, the film is based on Article 15 of the Indian Constitution which prohibits discrimination on the basis of cast, religion, sex, race and place of birth.
