Article 15, based on the infamous Badaun rape case of 2014, is an investigation drama with Ayushmann playing a cop. Kabir Singh, a Hindi remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, is the story of brilliant resident doctor with anger management issues, who goes on self destructive mode after his girlfriend married another person.

Article 15, which is being received very well in urban centres, ran into trouble in Kanpur on Friday when some groups entered cinema halls in the city and the shows in some theatres had to be stopped. The film has been hailed for its hard-hitting content and taking on the caste issue in India.
