The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea against Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15, asking the petitioners to approach the appropriate authority. The Brahmin Samaj of India (BSOI) had appealed to the apex court to cancel the film’s censor certification. The group had alleged that using the title Article 15 without prior permission was illegal and could damage public perception about the constitution of India. It had also accused the film of spreading caste hatred and depicting facts inaccurately.

Welcoming the SC’s decision, Anubhav said, “Today the apex court of this country once again reinforced law of the land by dismissing an unfounded case. The Supreme Court disallowed the plea of the petitioner to cancel or question the certificate issued to the film by the Central Board of Film Certification.”

Article 15 stars Ayushmann Khurrana as an IPS officer investigating the rape and murder of two teenage Dalit girls in Lalgaon, Uttar Pradesh. The film is inspired by the 2014 Badaun gangrape and murder case. Released on June 28, Article 15 has earned Rs. 40. 86 crore at the box-office so far.
