The screening of Ayushmann Khurrana’s recent release Article 15 had been temporarily banned in Roorkee, Uttarakhand. This decision was taken because of protests by right-wing organisations, who objected to certain scenes in the movie. According to the buzz, they alleged that the movie had "maligned" a particular community. Before it was stalled, the film had been doing well in the town.

According to new reports, the ban on film Article 15 has now been revoked. Roorkee sub-divisional magistrate Ravindra Singh has in fact asked the management of the cinema hall to inform the police if they receive any threats during the screening of the film.

Article 15 is inspired by true events such as the 2014 Badaun gang rape and the 2016 Una flogging incident. 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. Along with the storyline, actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s performance has been applauded by the audience and the film has managed to earn 34 crore nett on the box office.

For the first time in his career, Ayushmann has played a serious role. His character, IPS officer Ayan Ranjan, left fans and followers impressed after the trailer and dialogue promos had released and audience rushed to theatres to watch the film on the day of release. Article 15 had a grand opening and collected 4.75 crore nett on the first day.
