Anubhav Sinha's Article 15, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, will attempt to uncover the disturbing reality of caste discrimination in India. But even in our daily lives, we may be guilty of discrimination without fully realising it. Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana is currently planned for the release of his next upcoming film “Article 15”, which deals with the subject of caste discrimination at a depth no other Bollywood film has attempted this till now. Ayushmann Khurrana has evolved as one of those actors in the industry who has gained the trust of his audience as far as the content of his films is concerned. The actor has made calculated film choices ever since he amaze Bollywood with his first film, Vicky Donor, in 2012.
His wife Tahira Kashyap said in an earlier interview, "Ayushmann has a knack of sniffing out amazing, crazy scripts that are relevant at the same time, and as an artist, he is fearless. I am proud of the same." We couldn't agree more. Anubhav Sinha is back with Article 15. The film attempts to redress the problem of caste discrimination in the country. Article 15 tells about caste horrors head on. The film is loosely based on the group of 2014 Badaun gang rape and murder, where two girls were found hanging from a tree. The case saw many twists and turns as the local police and CBI said that there was no sexual assault and that the girls committed suicide.
Directed by Sinha, the film also starring Isha Talwar, M Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub in the key roles. 'Article 15' will hit the theatres on June 28.
