Actress Sayani Gupta will be launching her singing career with her debut in Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15. She was recently recorded sharing her sentiments which indicated that she always wanted to sing for her films. She will lend her angelic voice to the song, ‘Kahab Toh’. In regards to lending her voice to the songs of her films she candidly said in a recent statement: “I have always wanted to sing in my films. It was like a dream waiting to get fulfilled. I have grown up singing Bengali folk songs. And when I read about the song that my character sings in the film, I jumped! I told Anubhav Sinha and Anurag, the music director, that I sing and I sang for them in a corridor outside their office. It was almost like an impromptu singing audition. They immediately were convinced that I should sing for myself! I could not thank Anubhav sir and Anurag enough for letting me do this. It’s the most exciting part for me,” she excitedly added.
Sayani Gupta will shortly be seen in a de-glam avatar in Article 15. The highly anticipated movie also stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Manoj Pahwa, Isha Talwar, Kumud Mishra and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub to name a few. The goal of the film and the underlying story is basically to remind people and bring awareness surrounding the Constitution, specifically Article 15 of the Constitution. Article 15 of the Constitution prohibits and forbids any discrimination or judgment on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. The film also emphasizes how the value of Article 15 has been forgotten. The film is based on “shocking true events”, and it is scheduled to release in India on the 28th of June, 2019.
In Article 15, Ayushmann will play the role of a police officer who inspects the rape and murder case of two teenage girls, loosely based on the 2014 Badaun gang rape and murder. The film, is set in Uttar Pradesh, talks about the caste-based discrimination prevalent in Indian society.
