Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 starring Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. After the tremendous success of AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho. The film is said to be based on 2014’s Badaun rape and murder case and this will be the first time when Ayushmann will be seen donning a cop’s look.
Ayushmann is already on a roll by giving back-to-back successes and this one too, looks promising. The movie revolves around a sensitive topic and it is already garnering praises from all corners. Having said that Article 15 is expected to show a low buzz in advance ticket sale given the fact that it is more word-of-mouth dependent affair and not a bumper opener.
