Article 15 has opened to a decent box office collection on Day 1. The Ayushmann Khurrana starrer has received rave reviews from critics and is doing reasonably well at the box office for a film of this kind.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s business on social media. The Abhinav Sinha directorial gathered momentum in the evening shows and saw substantial growth on Day 2. The film is also doing better business in metropolitans and according to analysts, fair share of the box office collection will come from there.

On Friday, the film collected a total of Rs 5.02 crore in the domestic market. Despite that, the film has done better than the director’s previous film ,Mulk, starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead.

Mulk had earned Rs 1.68 crores on the opening Friday.

Article 15 is the second film of Ayushmann after Badhaai Ho that has done so well at the box office. While the former earned Rs 7.35 crores on the opening Fridy, AndhaDhun ,another critically acclaimed film of the actor, earned only Rs 2.70 crores.

As Taran Adarsh put it, it is Ayushmann Khurrana against Ayushmann Khurrana. The actor is creating new records and setting benchmarks for content driven films to shine at the box office.

Like his other films, most are depending on word of mouth for Article 15 to stay and flourish in theatres across the country.

Article 15 also starrs Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, Manoj Pahwa and Isha Talwar.

The film is inspired from true live events, Badaon ( UP) gang rape case of two minor girls in 2014 and the Una flogging incident in 2016.

It released on Friday, 28 June 2019.
