Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has given a thumbs up to Yami Gautam starrer trailer ‘Article 370’. Read here to know what he said.
Akshay Kumar praises Yami Gautam and the team of Article 370.
In August 2019, the Central Government abolished Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. As a result, the government decided to divide the state into two Union Territories: Jammu and Kashmir, which would have a legislature, and Ladakh, which would not. Article 370 stated that, except for matters concerning defence, foreign affairs, communications, and issues specified in the Instrument of Accession of Jammu and Kashmir, Parliament required the state government's approval for all other laws. Until then, residents of the state had lived under a distinct set of laws, covering citizenship, property ownership, and fundamental rights.
This significant development is now part of Indian history, and today, Bollywood enthusiasts received a treat with the release of the trailer for the Yami Gautam-starrer "Article 370." As the title implies, the film revolves around this topic of national importance.
This afternoon, actress Yami Gautam took to her social media handles and shared what is in store for the film, Article 370. “Poora ka poora Kashmir, Bharat desh ka hissa tha, hai aur rahega! #Article370Trailer Out Now! Releasing in cinemas on 23rd February,” she said. The trailer features Yami as an intelligence officer who is on a mission to curb the problems faced by the presence of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
Many social media users loved seeing Yami in the trailer, and added, “A blockbuster is loading,” in the comments section.
“The actor who played the role of Home Minister Amit Shah in the film is fabulous,” wrote another X user.
Adding charm to the social media praises is actor Akshay Kumar, who shared his view on the trailer as well. Taking to X, Akshay said, “Kashmir Bharat ka hissa tha, hai, aur hamesha rahega #Article370Trailer looks full of josh! All the best, Jai Hind! @yamigautam @jiostudios”
"Article 370," set to release just a few months before the 18th Lok Sabha elections, carries a clear message. The YouTube description of the film boldly states, "Poora ka Poora Kashmir, Bharat Desh ka hissa tha, hai aur rahega! (The entire of Kashmir was, is, and will always be a part of India)." Alongside Yami Gautam, the film also features Priyamani and Arun Govil. Scheduled for theatrical release on February 23, the film is directed by Aditya Suhas Jambhale and produced by Aditya Dhar, known for directing "Uri: The Surgical Strike" and winning a National Film Award for Best Director for the same.
