The film is reportedly based on the 2014 Badaun rape case.
Mumbai: Teaser of Anubhav Sinha’s next Directorial venture, Article 15, which stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead dropped on Monday, and gave a glimpse into how Article 15 of the Indian constitution prohibits discriminating against any citizen on ground of any religion, caste, sex, place of birth, and how reality was completely different. The film is reportedly based on the 2014 Badaun rape case.
Earlier in the day, Ayushmann shared a video on social media, which was supposedly the trailer. However, at the beginning itself, the actor says, “Aapki Aukat Aapko Yeh trailer Dekhne Ki Anumati Nahin Deti”, which came as a bit of a shock to the audience. However, later on in the video, Khuranna goes on to explain of the mere mention of the word ‘Aukat’ was disturbing to many, and on the other hand, millions of Indians suffer because of caste-based discrimination at every level on daily basis. With the shock value and the mere idea of being subjected to discrimination, the video managed to sensitize the viewers to the plight of those who suffer because of discrimination every day!
Here's a glimpse into the reaction of the audience.
