Actor Ayushmann Khurrana once again proved his dedication towards his craft. He is currently shooting for director Anubhav Sinha‘s Article 15 in Lucknow. A scene recently required him and other actors in the film to shoot in a swamp. Ayushmann with actors, who are playing investigative members of his team in the film, entered the swamp only to realise that it was filled with leeches. Now, in a usual scenario, anyone would try to run away from the spot inorder to escape the pain, but Ayushamnn and team didn’t leave their shot halfway. They completed their scene with utmost conviction, beating the painful attack of the leeches.

Ayushmann himself narrated the entire incident on social media. He posted a picture of himself with other actors in their respective characters. Ayushmann wrote, “Today was a true test of my love for my craft. We are in the middle of shooting Article 15, being directed by the super talented Anubhav Sinha. Yesterday, we had a challenging day – a shot required us to enter into a swamp and do a gripping scene. We realised that the swamp was filled with leeches only when we were in the middle of the shot! I would like to salute my brave team of investigative officers (it’s an honour to act with these talented actors) for finishing the scene despite a vicious leech attack! @anubhavsinhaa hum aapke liye khoon bahane ko tayaar hain. #Article15.” (sic)

Article 15, as the title suggests, is the film about Article 15 of the Indian constitution which prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, caste, sex, and the place of birth. Apart from Ayushmann, the film also stars Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, and Zeeshan Ayyub among others in important roles. Director Anubhav Sinha once described Ayushmann as an ‘extraordinary actor’ while explaining why he cast him in Article 15.
