Ayushmann Khurrana turns cop for Anubhav Sinha's Article 15
Touted as one of Anubhav's most ambitious projects, the film is the director's first collaboration with the Badhaai Ho actor.
Director Anubhav Sinha's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Mulk is titled Article 15, and will feature Ayushmann Khurrana as a cop.
Article 15 of the Indian Constitution is about the "Prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth", and Anubhav, in a statement said, "The film is an investigative drama where the audience too is an accused party."
Touted as one of Anubhav's most ambitious projects, Article 15 is the director's first collaboration with the actor.
"I'm always intrigued by the sociopolitical situation of our country. We hardly see films which present the situation in an unbiased way. Anubhav is one such director who understands the complexities of our country... It will be an absolute pleasure to work with him," Ayushmann said in a statement.
Anubhav, who worked six months on the script, in a statement said, "It is a very challenging film that needed an extraordinary actor like Ayushmann. Delighted to have him on board with an explosive bundle of such talented and acclaimed actors."
Article 15 has a stellar support cast, which includes Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat and Zeeshan Ayub.
Produced by Benaras Media Works, the film went on floors from March 1 in Lucknow.
