Actor Ayushmann Khurrana says working in Article 15 turned to be an eye-opener and the film hit him hard emotionally. "I played a police officer for the first time in my career. The story hit me hard emotionally and it was an eye-opener because we live in a protected world where such incidents are reported and watched on news channels and read in newspapers, but still fail to drive any action or debate," Ayushmann said.

"We as a society, see what is happening around us but we choose to ignore the truth, and opt to live in our convenient urban bubbles. I am content to see the film being the breakout title of the month on IMDb, as my aim was to leave an impact on the audience through the story and start a conversation on this," he added.

Article 15, which also features Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Manoj Pahwa, aims to remind people about how Article 15 of the Constitution -- which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth -- is constantly violated by society. It has become the IMDb Breakout Title for the month of July.

Director Anubhav Sinha says his intent was to make the audience "question such incidents which are reported in the newspapers everyday but we are barely affected by them".

"I have always believed in raising issues in society through my story, as in India Bollywood has a huge influence on the people. I am glad that 'Article 15' is being highly rated on IMDb and my work could leave people with a thought after leaving the cinema halls," he added.

Super 30 to be exempted from taxes in Maharashtra

Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 will be tax-free now

Continue reading …


Ever since Kaabil’s success, Hrithik Roshan had been fully concentrating on Super 30. The Anand Kumar biopic required the actor to learn not only the Bihari accent, but also his mannerisms. While the film did take over a year to hit the theatres, to everyone’s delight, Super 30 gained massive success with the audiences and the box-office. 


Still going strong, Super 30 has now crossed another milestone. Decided by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, the film will run tax-free in theatres from now on, all across Maharashtra. This not only helps the film reach a wider audience but also reduces the ticket prices in all movie theatres. 

 

Super 30

 
Super 30 is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar who dedicated his life to educating children from under privileged backgrounds. With Hrithik Roshan’s impeccable portrayal of Anand Kumar and the film going tax-free, we sure will see a rise in the overall box-office of the film.

Judgementall Hai Kya was surrounded by a lot of buzz before its release. The makers had made sure that they left no stone unturned to make the audience eager about this one. Starring Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut, everything from the film’s poster to the trailer created the required hype. However, the film has failed to impress at the box-office. Despite getting decent reviews and the audience who have gone to watch it also appreciating the venture, the film is not making big bucks at the cash counters.
