Article 15

Ayushmann Khurrana turns into a righteous IPS officer extolling the virtues of the constitution in the teaser of Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15. “Religion, race, caste, sex, place of birth…,” the actor quotes from the Bharatiya Samvidhan in the 47-second-long clip, “Or on the basis of any of these factors, the State shall not discriminate against any of its citizens.”

His voiceover is played over images of a mob clashing with the police, men carrying saffron and blue flags, a police van patrolling the heartlands, and a version of the BR Ambedkar quote: “We are Indians, firstly and lastly.” The teaser ends with the film's tagline: 'Farq Bahut Kar Liya, Aab Farq Layenge' (We have discriminated enough, it's time to make a difference). 

Supposedly based on the 2014 Uttar Pradesh gape rape and murder case, Article 15 is a police procedural that examines issues of caste, communalism and extremism. The film marks Anubhav’s much-awaited follow-up to last year’s Mulk, which dealt with religious discrimination. 


Produced by Zee Studios, Article 15 is scheduled for release on June 28. The film also stars Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, and Manoj Pahwa.

Ayushmann Khurrana was last seen in Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun. His upcoming projects include Dream Girl, Bala, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, and Gulabo Sitabo.
