Ayushmann Khurrana's film 'Article 15' faced quite a lot of legal trouble as the film was alleged spreading rumours and caste hatred in society.

Ayushmann Khurrana's investigative film Article 15 has landed in quite a lot of legal trouble and had been making noise even ahead of its release. However, today the Supreme Court just refused a plea requesting cancellation of the certificate given by the Central Board of Film Certification to the film.

They also asked the petitioner seeking "appropriate authority under the act" for their grievances.


The bench of Justices S A Bobde and B R Gavai said: "You go to the appropriate authority under the act."

Earlier, Brahman Samaj of India accused Article 15 of spreading rumor and caste hatred in objectionable dialogues, therefore the petitioner has filed a case requesting cancellation of the film's certificate. Now as the court has rejected their plea,  the petition was withdrawn to send to the appropriate authority.


Released on June 28, Article 15 has been a big hit in the cinema and Ayushmann Khurrana who played the key role in the film is currently basking the success of the film.

Talking about Article 15, Ayushmann said: "Article 15 is an incredibly important film for India and its youth. I am delighted with the love and appreciation that the film has received in its opening weekend."

"As an actor, I have backed a story that is tremendously relevant and I thank my director Anubhav Sinha for his brilliant vision, his courage to tell a story that needed to be told. It was an emotionally draining role and I gave it my all. I'm delighted that my work is being liked by audiences who want to see good and quality cinema."

According to report, the film is inspired by a real-life event, Article 15 of the Indian Constitution which specifically prohibits any acts ò discrimination on grounds ò race, religion, sex, caste and place of birth. Until now, the film collected Rs 45.49 in total and is still having a stable run in the box office.
