Ayushmann Khurrana has been delivering hits one after the other. The actor is known to pick roles which would hardly ever interest a mainstream Bollywood star. One of the finest examples of the same is ‘Article 15’. Not only has the trailer of the movie been appreciated massively, there are many things which the actor did to make the role look picture perfect.

Ayushmann gave insights on getting into the skin of a reel cop for ‘Article 15’. Talking about the hardships while working on his role, he said, “My director Anubhav Sinha is an evolved soul. He recommended a lot of books to read before the shoot because this kind of discrimination is unique to our country. What ‘Mulk’ was for Hindu-Muslims, ‘Article 15’ is for casteism. And boy, was it a difficult shoot! We’d shoot around 5-6 am and in the evening, between 4.30-6.30 pm to catch the magical light. We filmed in muck, infested with leeches and water snakes, for three days.”

Ayushmann even revealed that he used to sit in a police station all day to see the cops in action to prepare for his role. He added that the film is very real and has no low-angle shots. Say what! He shot with actual leeches and water snakes. Kudos to your perfectionism, Ayushmann!

For those who’ve come in late, Ayushmann Khurrana will be essaying the role of a heroic cop in the movie. His portrayal has created a lot of buzz ever since the release of its trailer.

The glimpses and trailers of the movie have already got everyone on their toes. The actor will be fighting against casteism in the film.

‘Article 15’ also stars Isha Talwar, M Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. It is set to get a world premiere at the tenth edition of the London Indian Film Festival. The investigative drama will be shown at the opening night.
