Ayushmann Khurrana's socio-political drama Article 15 will release in theatres tomorrow, June 28. The film, directed by Anubhav Sinha of Mulk fame, touches upon the sensitive topic of casteism. The film offers a realistic take on Article 15 of the Indian Constitution, which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.
According to reports, Article 15 is inspired from the Badaun gang rape and murder case. The Film Certification Board of India has given Article 15 the 'UA' certificate (unrestricted public exhibition) with parental guidance after five modifications.
Review: Film trade analyst Girish Johar has praised the movie as well as Ayushmann Khurrana's acting. He said, "Ayushmann Khurrana again treads a different and difficult path...and yet again comfortably."
