Ayushmann Khurrana is riding high on success and how! The very talented actor whose first release of 2019 was Article 15, created a huge wave amongst the citizens of the nation owing to the mind-numbing portrayal of the caste hierarchy our country faces till date. It was a stare-in-your-face film whose realistic storyline and execution left everyone gasping at our country’s reality and Ayushmann Khurrana, who had never donned the role of a cop, was lauded for his performance!
The Anubhav Sinha directorial is a stark reminder of the deep-rooted caste hierarchy of our country that still persists and the norms related to it alongside the aftermaths of not obeying the set rules. The movie is the most realistic investigative drama which is inspired by real-life incidents. From Dalit rapes to other atrocities, Article 15 gets a hold of the social nerve of the society which presents an alarming situation that the country is dealing with.
The national award-winning actor whose last year’s releases- Badhai Ho and Andhadhun both won National awards, has come to be known for his choice of different and brilliant scripts, which stand different from what the industry’s norm of ‘pure commercial entertainment’ has been. Ayushmann Khurrana has also emerged as the sole brand to promote ‘quality over quantity’ and ‘content over commerciality’.
Article 15 was one such film which was so different, so hard-hitting, and relatively dark and yet it saw a great footfall in the theatres. As it completes a successful 50 days at the Box Office, it’s a testimony to the fact that the film going audience of this country is getting more and more aware of what good content means and they’re growing more appreciative of it.

Arjun Patiala box office collection: Kriti Sanon – Diljit Dosanjh’s film to earn THIS amount over the first weekend?
Kriti Sanon, Diljit Dosanjh, Varun Sharma’s Arjun Patiala is all set to hit the theatres on this Friday (July 26) and here’s our prediction of how much the film will earn at the box office on its opening weekend
Kriti Sanon, Diljit Dosanjh, Varun Sharma’s Arjun Patiala is all set to release this Friday (July 26). The quirky and entertaining trailer must have excited you, but the buzz around the film still remains low. In fact, even with an interesting plot and some good songs, the team has not been able to generate much hype around the film. However, Arjun Patiala has the potential to have a decent opening weekend at the box office. And it’s not us, but our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) who says this! In fact, he even predicted that the film will earn a good amount over the opening weekend. Read on to know more…
Talking about the movie, Akshaye reveals to us exclusively, “The biggest advantage of Arjun Patiala is its appeal in the Northern belt of India with Diljit Dosanjh being a part of it. Punjab is sorted and states with majority of Punjabi population are also sorted. Beyond that, the trailer and the music of the movie are quite appealing. So I certainly feel that in the Northern parts of India, particularly Punjab, the movie has great potential. It seems entertaining and also has Diljit Dosanjh doing cute antics that appeal to people across the social spectrum. Clearly, it is one of those nice, clean movies that has the potential to reach out to people and entertain them. I see no reason why it cannot do something interesting at the box office.”
Check out the Arjun Patiala trailer right here:
While predicting the opening weekend collections of Arjun Patiala, Akshaye Rathi said, “The opening might get affected due to Judgementall Hai Kya. But it should do well in the Northern belts of India. With that, Arjun Patiala should start off with Rs 3 – 3.50 crore collection on day one at the box office. From there on, it can rake in Rs 12 crore over the first weekend.” Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more Bollywood news, updates and gossip.
