Actor Ayushmann Khurrana says he is happy with his decision to star in Anubhav Sinha’s hard-hitting socio-political drama Article 15 as he believes the film’s success has reaffirmed the fact that content is king.
Directed by Sinha of Mulk fame, the film is based on Article 15 of the Indian Constitution which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.
Ayushmann, who has a history of starring in socially relevant films, said Article 15 was a new experience for him.
“‘Article 15’ has been an experience like no other and I am glad that I went with my gut instinct again and choosing and believing in content being king always.
“I am extremely happy to see how well the nation has received it. I have been flooded with messages from all across and I can only say, your love has been the biggest support. I am delighted by the response,” the actor said in a statement.
The movie, which also features Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, Manoj Pahwa and Nassar, has so far collected Rs 36.86 crore at the box office.
It released countrywide on July 4.
