Article 15 Box Office Collection: Ayushman Khurrana starrer 'Article 15' has continued to maintain a steady run at the box office. The film has so far minted Rs 40.86 crore in the second week of its release. Article 15 had an opening day collection of Rs. 5.02 crore but it went on to earn over Rs. 20 crore in the opening weekend. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh today said Article 15 collected Rs. 2.65 crore on Friday and Rs. 4 crore on Saturday in the second weekend. Adarsh also said that film is eyeing Rs. 50 crore and will cross the mark in some coming days.
"#Article15 crosses ₹ 40 cr mark... Continues its steady run at metros, which should help it cross ₹ 50 cr mark in coming days... [Week 2] Fri 2.65 cr, Sat 4 cr. Total: ₹ 40.86 cr. India biz," Adarsh tweeted.
'Article 15' generated good reviews, becoming Ayushmann's second-biggest opener after 'Badhaai Ho', which had earned Rs. 45.70 crore in its extended four-day weekend.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Article 15 is loosely inspired by the heinous Badaun rape incident where two teenage girls were gang-raped and gruesomely murdered by hanging them while they were still alive.
The movie tries to highlight the caste discrimination through a mix of various incidents.
Article 15 of the Indian constitution prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex, and place of birth. Apart form Ayushman, other actors in the film are Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub.
Article 15 has been produced by Benaras Media Works. It released on June 28.
