Ayushmann Khurrana's latest release Article 15 will today enter the Rs 50 crore club at the Indian box office. The film, which released on June 28, has been going steady at the ticket windows despite new movies coming out every Friday. After faring well over the second weekend, Anubhav Sinha's directorial venture held up well on the second Monday as well. However, on Tuesday, Ayushmann starrer suffered at the box office due to India's semi-final match against New Zealand in the ongoing cricket world cup. Nonetheless, Article 15 has turned out to be a crowd puller and that's good news for Khurrana who has been in the top form since last year.
