Comment(s) We see a giant statue of Dr BR Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution of India. Ayushmann Khurrana’s voiceover ends and he says all that he said does not come from him but is actually written in the Indian Constitution. It also prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. A vehicle on which a loudspeaker is mounted and a pamphlet advocating the Brahman-Dalit ekta (unity) is attacked by a few miscreants. He is reading the Hindi text of Article 15. He concludes with, “Farq bohot kar liya. Now we will bring a difference). Several people attack policemen. The teaser begins with the text “Samta Ka Adhikar” (right to equality). The voice of Ayushmann Khurrana, who is playing the role of a cop, is heard. Ab farq layenge.” (We have discriminated long enough. It also seems to criticise political and communal violence, which few mainstream films in India dare to. The title of the film is derived from Article 15 of the Constitution of India, which enshrines the right to equality before law for every citizen of India.
