Ayushmann Khurrana starrer 'Article 15' which released on Friday (June 28, 2019) opened to positive reviews from the critics and has also managed to impress the audience as well.
Inspired by real-life incidents, the film revolves around how three Dalit girls get brutally gang-raped and then murdered with their bodies left hanging on a tree, after they ask for a hike in their daily wages. Ayushmann Khurrana as the cop steps into investigate and search for one of the three girls, only to discover how deeply-rooted the caste-system is in our society.
After minting an opening box office collection of Rs. 5.02 crore on Friday, early estimates suggest that the Saturday morning occupancy for Article 15 is in the range of 35-40%. The numbers might double in the evening through positive word-of-mouth.
