In a recent interview, Ayushmann Khurrana revealed how he trained for Article 15 by observing a friend who was an IPS officer in Delhi and also saw the local cops in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh to perfect his role. He also mentioned how difficult it was for him to shoot for the film.
The actor 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 5-6am and in the evening, between 4.30-6.30pm to catch the magical light. We filmed in muck, infested with leeches and water snakes, for three days”,
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Article 15 stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Isha Talwar, M Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub as is slated to release in cinemas on 28thJune 2019.
