First look poster of Ayushmann Khurrana from 'Article 15' unveiled!
The Anubhav Sinha directorial film is inspired by the Badaun rape incident.
Speaking to ANI, 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."
Playing a cop for the first time, the actor can be seen donning the attire of a no-nonsense police officer with an intense brooding face. Interestingly, the sunglasses worn by the actor says a lot more about the film and his character. In the lenses, bodies of two girls can be seen hanging from a tree which creates a lot more suspense. On the other side of the lense, the viewers can spot a group of people protesting against the crime.
