Article 15: Ahead of its trailer Ayushmann Khurrana as a message for us.
Ayushmann Khurrana gives us a lesson about the harsh reality of the Indian caste system.
Aapki aukaat aapko ye trailer dekhne ki anumati nahi deti (Your status doesn’t allow you to watch this trailer) declares Ayushmann Khurrana’s character who is a cop.
Mainstream Bollywood Cinema doesn’t show us the harsh reality of our country on the silver screen and the upcoming film Article 15 talks about it.
Makers have released a 43-second video which starts with the trailer but Ayushmann’s character interrupts in between and talks about the harsh reality of caste system.
