The trailer of Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chaddha starrer 'Section 375' released today and has already garnered over 60,000 likes on YouTube.
Directed by Ajay Bahl, with Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chaddha in the lead playing lawyers, this courtroom drama inspired by real-life incidents raises gripping and uncomfortable questions regarding Section - 375 of the Indian Penal Code, under which a woman can accuse a man of rape, if he has sexual intercourse with her without her consent, or if the consent is produced via coercion, deception, or the woman not being in a sound mental state to give consent.
The almost three-minutes-long trailer gives us a glimpse of how the two lawyers (Akshaye and Richa) find themselves on the opposite side of the law with Akshaye defending the rape accused while Richa coming to the survivor's defence.
While Akshaye Khanna was last seen in Dr Manmohan Singh’s biopic The Accidental Prime Minister, Richa Chadha featured in ZEE5’s Cabaret.
The film has been produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak and will hit the screens on September 13.
