To say that Ayushmann Khurrana treats his fans to different role in every film is to state the obvious because from Vicky Donor, Andhadhun, Shubh Mangal Saavdhabn, to Badhaai Ho and Dul Laga Ke Haisha, among others, this actor has amply proved that he is a master of his art. And post an amazing 2018, Ayushmann Khurrana didn’t fall complacent because with 2019, he has decided to push the boundaries because for the first time in his career, this Paani Da Rang actor will be seen in the role of a cop in Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15.  

And when a director is all praises for an actor, that is the biggest reward for any actor and talking about Ayushmann, Anubhav Sinha said that Ayushmann has an urge to deliver the best. In an interview to Mirror, Anubhav Sinha said, “Ayushmann was an absolute natural while playing a cop. There was this irresistible urge to veer close to the popular heroic versions earlier played by Ranveer Singh, Salman Khan, and Anil Kapoor but somehow Ayushmann managed to tread into unchartered territory to carve out a heroic yet super realist cop.”

As we all know, Amitabh Bachchan’s character in the 1973 film Zanjeer was the benchmark for all actors vis-a-via cop roles, and Abubhav went on to liken liken Ayushmann’s portrayal with that of Amitabh Bachchan as he said, “The last time I saw this combination in a performance was by Mr. Bachchan and yes, Ayushmann’s cop is angry too.” Article 15 will hit the screens on June 28, 2019, and the film is based on Article 15 of the constitution, which prohibits discrimination on the grounds of caste, sex, religion or place of birth. Post the trailer of the film, a few days back, the makers dropped an anthem titled Shuru Karein Kya and the song is an angry rap featuring four rappers who echo the national discrimination that exists in the country. On the work front, post Article 15, Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Bala and Dream Girl.
