Mumbai: Ayushman Khurrana, Bollywood’s multifaceted actor is all set to play the role of a cop in a bold avatar in his most anticipated upcoming investigative drama Article 15. The actor gives us insights on how he has worked hard in slaying the role of a cop with perfection.

Talking about working on his role, the actor shared, "My director Anubhav Sinha is an evolved soul. He recommended a lot of books to read before the shoot because this kind of discrimination is unique to our country. What Mulk was for Hindu-Muslims, Article 15 is for casteism. And boy, was it a difficult shoot! We’d shoot around 5-6 am and in the evening, between 4.30-6.30 pm to catch the magical light. We filmed in muck, infested with leeches and water snakes, for three days.” While Ayushmann even revealed that he used to sit in a police station all day to see the cops in action to prepare for his role. He added that the film is very real and has no low-angle shots"
