The film will hit the theatres on June 28.
Ayushmann Khurrana teased a new poster from his upcoming ‘Article 15’ today as he dons his cop uniform and dons a pair of shades.
The poster tweet accompanied an important announcement, that the film teaser will be out today. He captioned the image: “Farq bahut kar liya, ab farq layenge. #Article15Teaser out today @anubhavsinha @ZeeStudios_ @ZeeMusicCompany #ManojPahwa #IshaTalwar #nassar @sayanigupta @Mdzeeshanayyub #BenarasMediaWorks.”
The film is directed by Anubhav Sinha and it focuses on Article 15 of the Indian Constitution that prohibits discrimination by the state against any citizen on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex and place of birth.
Ayushmann had earlier too released a photo from the film as he looked intense. Talking about the film he 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. Anubhav Sinha is one such director who understands the complexities of our country. I loved Mulk. It is the most balanced film based on communalism and extremism. And it will be an absolute pleasure to work with him on Article 15.”
Today was a true test of my love for my craft. We are in the middle of shooting Article 15, being directed by the super talented Anubhav Sinha. Yesterday, we had a challenging day - a shot required us to enter into a swamp and do a gripping scene. We realised that the swamp was filled with leeches only when we were in the middle of the shot! I would like to salute my brave team of investigative officers (it’s an honour to act with these talented actors) for finishing the scene despite a vicious leech attack! @anubhavsinhaa hum aapke liye khoon bahane ko tayaar hain. #Article15
He had even taken to Twitter earlier and wrote, "Wrapped up a film which will become the most relevant and important film of Indian cinema. Thank you Anubhav Sinha sir for giving me this gem and also writing the most real cop role ever.”
The film ‘Article 15’ also features Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.
The film went on floors from March 1 in Lucknow and was wrapped earlier last month.
It will hit the theatres on June 28.
