Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana's much-anticipated venture 'Article 15' released on Friday, June 28 and the film made a decent start at the box office. The film which deals with social injustice and caste discrimination was widely praised by the audience and the critics. It collected over Rs. 5 crores on its opening day.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and made the announcement of the same. In a recent post, he revealed that the film has grossed Rs. 5.02 crores on day 1.
In the post, he wrote, "#Article15 has a decent Day 1... Gathered speed towards evening shows, after a dull start in the morning... Should witness an upward trend/substantial growth on Day 2... Metros are driving the biz and high-end multiplexes will contribute largely... Fri ₹ 5.02 cr. India biz."

Adarsh further stated that 'Article 15' is the second biggest opener of Ayushmann after 'Badhaai Ho' which had an opening day collection of Rs. 7.35 crores.
Take a look:
'Article 15', directed by Anubhav Sinha, is 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. It narrates the hard-hitting tale of the honour killing and the feckless attitude of the police department in dealing with the matters.
Apart from Ayushmann, the film also stars Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Naser, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Subrajyoti Bharat, and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub in the film. The film is produced by Benaras Media Works.
