‘Article 15’ Song: ‘Shuru Karein Kya’ Is an Angry Call to Action

The makers of upcoming Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Article 15 just dropped a rap track from the film. Titled ‘Shuru Karein Kya’, the song features indie rappers SlowCheeta (Chaitanya Sharma), Dee MC (Deepa Unnikrishnan), Kaam Bhaari (Kunal Pandagle), and Spitfire (Nitin Sharma). Filled with the right kind of rage and energy, the song is a call to action that urges people to work towards the kind of change they want to see.

Listen to the track here:

The video of the song features its rappers along with clips of Ayushmann from Article 15. Ayushmann took to Instagram to share the song. He called it “a song that the society needs right now!”

Earlier Ayushmann had shared a teaser of the song. “It's time to BE the change!” he wrote on Instagram.

‘Shuru Karein Kya’ has been written by SlowCheeta, Dee MC, Kaam Bhaari & Spitfire. It has been composed by Devin "DLP" Parker & Gingger.

Article 15 is directed by Anubhav Sinha, who last directed the film Mulk. Mulk starred actors like Rishi Kapoor, Neena Gupta, Preteik Babbar and more. The Anubhav Sinha directorial is loosely inspired by the rape and murder of two Dalit women, which took place in Badaun in Uttar Pradesh.

In the trailer, Ayushmann portrays a police officer who is sent to a village in UP to investigate the rape and murder of two young Dalit girls who are found hanging from a tree. It is later revealed that they were targeted because they demanded a hike in their daily wages. Ayushmann’s character has to contend with the caste politics at play while getting to the bottom of the investigation.

Recently, a Brahmin outfit, called Parshuram Sena, from Uttar Pradesh had alleged that the film showed the Brahmin community in a bad light. News agency IANS has reported that the Parshuram Sena were upset that the trailer suggested that the crime in question was committed by a Mahantji, the highest Brahmin sub-caste, as they felt it would defame the community.
