फर्क बहुत कर लिया , अब फर्क लाएंगे #Article15 Teaser out today @anubhavsinhaa @zeestudiosofficial @zeemusiccompany #ManojPahwa @talwarisha #KumudMishra #nassar @sayanigupta @mohdzeeshanayyub @ashishsverma @ronjinichakraborty @shubhro30 #SushilPandey #AakashDhabade @gauravkapata @benarasmediaworks
The film takes inspiration from true life events and the 46-second teaser is quite an intense one. The film is based on Article 15 of the Constitution, which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. Expressing his excitement, Ayushmann Khurrana, while talking about the opportunity had said, “I’m always intrigued by the socio-political situation of our country. We hardly see films which present the situation in an unbiased way. And it will be an absolute pleasure to work with him (Anubhav) on Article 15.
The teaser opens with Ayushmann’s voice-over explaining Article 15 of the constitution. It speaks about the ‘Right to Equality’ or ‘Samta ka Adhikar’ as showcased in the trailer. Riots on the streets, protests, and police personnel trying to control the crowds make for an eye catchy teaser.
Ayushmann surely makes for an enthralling yet convincing cop. Towards the end of the teaser, he says, “Farq bahut karlia, ab farq layenge”.
Actor Manoj Pahwa who is playing a vital role in the film, said, “This film is not completely based on the heinous crime that took place in Badaun where two girls were raped and hanged. We can say that this film is inspired by that incident and we have included some chunks of it.”
The trailer will be out on May 30 and the film is slated to release on June 28 and we are all curious to watch another thrilling investigative drama by talented team of director Anubhav Sinha!
