After the threats from Karni Sena against the release of Article 15, director Anubhav Sinha says that filmmakers can't be constantly bullied.

After hard-hitting socio relevant film Mulk, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha is all set to release his upcoming film Article 15.

But controversy emerged when Hindu fringe outfit Parshuram Sena alleged that Article 15 shows Brahmins in a bad light, reports of the director's effigies being burnt have surfaced. The Karni Sena too has threatened to stall the release of Article 15. The film hits the screens on June 28.

Director Anubhav Sinha has refuted all allegations claiming that Article 15 is an anti-Brahmin film. In an interview with Mid-Day, Anubhav Sinha said, "Why would I make an anti-Brahmin film? People are smart enough to know that there were enough and more Brahmins associated with the making of the film to know [that it doesn't showcase them in bad light]."

Article 15 is a socio-political drama loosely based on the Badaun rape and murder case (2014) and other real incidents of caste discrimination. Ayushmann Khurrana plays a dedicated cop who is investigating the murder of two teenage girls.

Ironically, the caste community who threatened to stall the film is been named Article 15 of the Constitution, which states that the State or any citizen should not discriminate anyone based on their religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.
