Article 15 BEATS Shubh Mangal Savdhaan to become Ayushmann Khurrana’s second biggest opener of all-time

In our earlier story, we had mentioned that despite facing stiff competition from Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 has managed to perform well at the box office. The film raked in Rs 5.02 crore on its first day, which is a great number for a movie, which is not a commercial potboiler. With its first day total, the film has turned out to be Ayushmann Khurrana’s second biggest opener of all-time after his last release Badhaai Ho. It has beaten films like Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, AndhaDhun, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Dum Laga Ke Haisha to achieve this feat at the box office.

Talking about the film, Ayushmann earlier said that Article 15 is a content-driven film on the subject of discrimination itself.”Our film is ‘inspired’ by real events and it is not based on a particular event. It is an amalgamation of a series of events happening in our country. Yes, it’s hard hitting and it will make you uncomfortable but it’s a real film,” he added.

Ayushmann exclaimed it’s an “investigative drama and a very relevant film for India and it’s youth”.”I only urge everyone to watch the film and not make any assumptions on the director’s vision and intent,” he said. The film also stars Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Nassar, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Shubrajyoti Bharat, Ronjini Chakraborty and Zeeshan Ayyub.
