Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana is currently shooting for his upcoming film 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 and it was only half way through the scene that they realised the swamp was filled with leeches.

Sharing a picture of his co-stars, the actor tweeted, “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! Anubhav Sinha hum aapke liye khoon bahane ko tayaar hain (Anubhav Sinha, we are ready to shed blood for you)”

Talking about the film, director Anubhav Sinha states, “It is an investigative drama where the audience too is an accused party. A very challenging film that needed an extraordinary actor like Ayushmann. Delighted to have him on board with an explosive bundle of such talented and acclaimed actors.”
The film also stars Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub in prominent roles.
