After ardently presenting a rather delicate and provocative subject with élan in the critically acclaimed Rishi Kapoor-Taapsee Pannu starrer ‘Mulk’, director and producer Anubhav Sinha is gearing up to helm his next - a hard hitting investigative drama, pegged to be one of his most ambitious projects till date.
Titled ‘Article 15’, the film will not only be a first of its kind within the film industry with regards to its mammoth plotline, but will also see a fresh industry pairing with Sinha teaming up for the first time with the archetype of sundry cinema, Ayushmann Khurrana who enjoyed a successful run at the box office with critically acclaimed ‘Badhaai Ho’ and ‘Andhadhun’ last year.
While Khurrana will essay the role of the principal protagonist, a stellar support cast comprising Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa , Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Nasser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, Ronjini Chakraborty and Zeeshan Ayub are all set to make Article 15 one of the most explosive drama films of 2019.
Interestingly as seen in the first look, the versatile actor who has embraced a gamut of on-screen characters and redefined box office success with his diverse choice of cinema, from a blind man to a sperm donor, will be seen essaying the role of a police officer for the first time in this film.
“It is an investigative drama where the audience too is an accused party. A very challenging film that needed an extraordinary actor like Ayushmann. Delighted to have him on board with an explosive bundle of such talented and acclaimed actors," Sinha  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," Khurrana said.
The film will be produced by Benaras Media Works and has been on the floors since March 1 in Lucknow. True to Sinha’s recent cinematic appetite, the content-driven film will draw inferences from certain true-life events which have been researched upon over the last six months.
