Clearly, we’ve seen a lot of progress, but who is leading the race and which films are the highest box office grossers of all time?

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 completes successful 50 days at the Box Office!
As Article 15 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.
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.
