Ayushman Khurana's upcoming film 'Article 15' will be released on June 28 and its producers are also planning to screen it in rural parts of the country, where caste-based social discrimination is still prevalent. While the film's lead actor Ayushman Khurana told the media on Saturday, "One of the reasons for filmmaking has been that we want to reach rural India and reach places where caste discrimination is still there."
Actor Ayushman Khurana said, "If we make an Art House film and go to international film festivals, we will be able to reach only those viewers who already know about discrimination." "But if we reach out to the rural people, we can change their mindsets," he said.
"We are planning a mobile screening and the special screening of the film will enable everyone to access it," said director Experience Sinha. In the film, Ayushman appears to be in the role of a police officer who enters a village to investigate the rape and murder of two Dalit girls."
For information, Badaun of Uttar Pradesh came to the news in 2014 when the bodies of two girls were found hanging from a tree. Two cousins, aged 14 and 15, went missing from their home on the night of May 27, 2014, and later found their bodies hanging from a tree in the village of Ushat area the next day.
