Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 has bagged the Viewers Award on the London Indian Movie Competition (LIFF).
The 10th version of the UK and Europe’s South Asian movie pageant, supported by the Bagri Basis and the British Movie Institute (BFI), opened with Anubhav Sinha’s hard-hitting thriller Article 15 on June 20 and the movie went on to win the award. The movie relies on the article 15 of the Indian structure which prohibits discrimination on the premise of faith, race, caste, intercourse or homeland.
Director Anubhav Sinha launched an announcement over how excited he was on the truth that the movie earned this feat. He stated, “I am delighted to have won the LIFF Audience Award. So happy that the film actually connected with Indians abroad and with non-Indians alike, who are not facing this version of inequality on a daily basis. While the film is so rooted in the heartland, we were always confident that the film has a global resonance and winning at the prestigious LIFF showcases that the film has found its audience and appreciation outside of India as well. The validation at LIFF only reinforces our belief that good content is geography agnostic and drives us to take our cinema far and wide.”
Within the movie, we see Ayushmann play an investigation officer. The movie additionally stars Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, Isha Talwar and Manoj Pahwa in key roles.
