2018 was a sensational year for Ayushmann Khurrana as he delivered two blockbuster hits with AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho. The content of both the films was out-of-the-box and it got the right kind of appreciation from the audience. The 34-year-old actor has now come up with Article 15, which is set to hit the silver screens on Friday. The promos of the cop drama have worked big time but since it is not a commercial potboiler, Article 15 is not expected to open with huge numbers at the box office.
As per our predictions, the hard-hitting drama will open between Rs 4 to Rs 5 crore on its first day at the ticket windows. Like any other content-driven films, the success of Article 15 at the box office will depend on positive reviews. It has the potential to show substantial growth in its opening weekend and may cross Rs 25 crore mark in the domestic market.
Talking about Article 15, Ayushmann recently said, "One of the reasons why we wanted to make the film is that we want to reach out to rural India, in places where the discrimination is still happening based on caste. If we make an art house film and travel to international film festivals, we will only reach to the audience who are already aware of the discrimination. But we can bring a change in the thought process of people if we reach out to them."
In the film, Ayushmann plays the role of a police officer, who visits a village for the investigation of the rape and murder of two Dalit women. Directed by Mulk helmer Anubhav Sinha, the film also stars Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra in key roles.
