A film that has been making it to the headlines is Ayushmann Khurrana starrer, Article 15. Anubhav Sinha’s film is based on an article in the Constitution of India which states that there has to be no discrimination between people on the basis of caste, creed, religion or gender. The story is based on real incidents in which Ayushmann will be seen playing a cop. While the trailer has been getting a lot of attention, Ayushmann’s brave portrayal of a cop has been the highlight.
In a recent interview with Times Now, Ayushmann was prodded about the fact that how do his kids, Virajveer and Varushka deal with his stardom. Ayushmann revealed that his kids know that their dad is an actor but are still letting the feeling sink in. Also, he stated that his children are young and don’t get his films completely. Hence, they don’t watch any of his films. Talking about taking time out for his family as a father, the AndhaDhun actor added that it is difficult for young actors who are married to strike a balance between work and personal life.
Ayushmann said, “They (Kids) have this sink link that I am an actor and they are proud of it but they don’t see my films because they don’t understand my films as of now, they are too young for that. But, I am sure in future they will be proud of my films. Being a young parent it becomes difficult for me because I am part of the young brigade of the contemporaries who are part of the new wave of Indian cinema and I have to do like good cinema and work hard towards it and right now we are just 24×7 working and shooting back to back films, it is difficult to strike that balance between professional and personal life.”
Meanwhile, Article 15 has faced a number of controversies due to the subject of the caste system. The Brahmin community mentioned that the film is anti-brahmin while the director Anubhav Sinha has been getting threat calls from organisations as per recent reports. Amidst this, the trailer has generated a lot of buzz among the youth who relate to the caste system subject. In the film, stars like Kumud Mishra, Isha Talwar, Zeeshan Ayyub and others will be seen. Article 15 is slated to release on June 28, 2019.
