- "Thank you for Article 15," he added
- Article 15 released last year
On director Anubhav Sinha's birthday, actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who worked with him in the 2019 film Article 15, wished him on social media. Ayushmann Khurrana shared a BTS photo from the sets of the film and wrote: "Happy birthday, Anubhav Sinha sir! Thank you for Article 15." Ayushmann, who reportedly signed a new film titled Anek with Anubhav Sinha earlier this year, added in his post: "I look forward to some more legendary stuff this year." Article 15 is based on Article 15 of the Indian constitution, which forbids discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, place of birth and others. It revolves around the story of a young IPS officer (played by Ayushmann), who investigates the case of gang rape and murder of two Dalit girls despite the issues he faces because of the strict caste system prevailing in Lalganj, Uttar Pradesh.
