With time, Bollywood has mastered the art of delivering socially relevant messages to the audience with a dose of entertainment. With a record of films like Vicky Donor, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann Khurrana has ruled this game for several years now.
Ayushmann's previous films dealt with serious, socially relevant topics but they were crafted in a way that had the audience in splits. The method helped Ayushmann stand out from his contemporaries and gain a strong fan following. These films helped catapult him to the solid people's actor that he is today.
After a series of films with a similar packaging, with Article 15, Ayushmann is choosing to break out of the mould. The actor plays the role of a serious cop in Article 15, shedding his earlier, fun boy-next-door image.
