The makers of Article 370, headlined by Yami Gautam, unveiled the first look of the film on Saturday, January 20.

A glimpse of the action-thriller Article 370
The teaser opens with a pan view of Kashmir valley accompanied by the text, "Kashmir, India's crowning glory was burning for 70 years". It was followed by several original footage of Kashmiri people protesting. The teaser highlights "terrorism", "corruption" and "separatist" issues faced by the people of the state.
Yami, a fierce officer, makes a power back entry while in the background we can hear her saying that the terrorism in Kashmir isn't a product of people demanding azadi (freedom), but because it's a "business" created by corrupt politicians. The actress also claims that perpetrators can't be held until the special status given to Jammu & Kashmir is revoked. The teaser also showcases Yami fighting what appears to be a terrorist and unravelling classified information to revoke the special status. As the screen goes blank, we can hear a voiceover announcing, "Chairman Sir, effective today, August 5, 2019, Article 370 of the Indian constitution will become inoperative."

Article 370 is a bold chapter of India’s history: Yami Gautam
The actress opened up about the film and hopes that the audience will enjoy the genre-defining film. She said, “Article 370 is a bold chapter of India’s history. A political-action-drama inspired by true events, which will show an in-depth portrayal of how intelligence and politics work hand in hand to take some of the most important decisions that change the course for a nation. I am hopeful that the audience will enjoy this genre-defining film. Personally, for me as an actor, this film gave me the opportunity to delve into newer depths of complexities and once again gave me a role that hasn’t been treaded before.”
Director Aditya Suhas Jambhale adds, “Being the director of a film which covers such an important chapter of our Indian history is an experience in itself. This movie perfectly balances politics with action, in a never-before-seen way. Largely shot in Kashmir and Delhi, this film gives a glimpse into the incredible story of rendering Article 370 ineffective. I firmly believe that the audience will feel the story's impact on the same level as we did during its creation.”
Produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Aditya Dhar and Lokesh Dhar, the film is slated to release in cinemas worldwide on February 23.
