With a powerful premise that deals with caste system and discrimination that continues to plague some parts of the country, the hard-hitting trailer of Article 15 was received with applauses. However, not surprisingly, the film soon was caught in the web of controversies wherein a Brahmin outfit alleged that the film portrayed their caste in bad light. Furthermore, a complaint was lodged against the makers as well as leading star Ayushmann Khurrana by the said outfit, Rashtriya Parashuram Sena. But, another Brahmin outfit has now come in support of the film. The Antarrashtriya Brahmin Mahasangh Bharat has given a green signal to the release and has asserted that the film doesn’t show anyone in poor light.
Anubhav Sinha took to social media to share a letter he received from a certain Pankaj Joshi who is the National President of the Antarrashtriya Brahmin Mahasangh Bharat. In the letter, Pankaj has not only supported the film but has also maintained that the film doesn’t portray their community in bad light. In fact, in the letter, Pankaj has stated that the reason why it felt like Brahmins were portrayed as rapists etc. in the trailer was because it was actually a publicity gimmick and the film in itself doesn’t promote any such notions. He asserted that nowhere in the film have they showcased Brahmins as criminals neither do they have any dialogues that defame the Brahmin community. In the letter, he has asserted that they are quite satisfied with the film and that they have given a green signal to the release of the same.
Anubhav Sinha posted this letter on his official Twitter handle, after he received the same on Whatsapp.
