Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadha have time and time again shown that two of them are capable of creating absolute magic on the big screen. Shortly, the dynamic duo will be sharing the big screen in their new, highly anticipated courtroom drama: Section 375. Akshaye Khanna will be playing the role of a criminal lawyer named Tarun Saluja in the film. Richa Chadha on the other hand, will be seen playing the aggressive role of the public prosecutor Hiral Mehta.

Poster of Section 375
The first-look poster of Section 375 has been interestingly designed as a newspaper clipping, which states, "Renowned filmmaker has been taken into custody by the Mumbai Police on charges of rape under Section 375.” The film, named with the eponymous Section 375, deals with that particular section of the Indian Penal Code.
Additionally, a quote attributed to the accused director in the film's first-look poster says, "Maine kisi ka rape nahin kiya (I didn't rape anyone).” Reading on the poster says: ”Judgement Day: September 13th," indicating that the film is scheduled to release on the 13th of September, this year. The first-look poster also informs the audience of the storyline of Sector 375.
"A young junior costume assistant working in Rohan Khurana's latest film production has filed a case against him. The victim's name has been withheld for her protection. The city has been unified in their support for the woman as reported in the media earlier and the case is up for hearing in court soon...." the first-look poster reads.
In a recent interview, Richa Chadha revealed that she met with the professors from law colleges in Mumbai in order to prepare for her role in Section 375. "My character is that of a very driven and ethical lawyer. Hence, I wanted to see what drives people to take up litigation in the first place. That's why law schools were a good idea and spending time with them was of great help. The research came in handy and has been crucial," the Gangs Of Wasseypur actress expressed.
In Section 375, Richa Chadha will argue for the victim who is played by South actress Meera Chopra (who made her Bollywood debut in Vikram Bhatt's 1920: London). Akshaye will be seen in the role of one of the best defence lawyers, working for the rape-accused film director, played by actor Rahul Bhatt. Directed by Ajay Bahl, Section 375 is produced by Panorama Studios. The film was earlier scheduled to release on August 2.
