Akshaye & Richa Battle It out in Court in ‘Section 375’ Trailer
The trailer for Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadda’s latest film Section 375 has released. The film, which is said to be based on true events, takes its name from Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which pertains to rape. Akshaye plays a lawyer for a film director who is accused of rape and Richa a public prosecutor seeking justice for her client, played by Meera Chopra.
Watch the trailer here:
The trailer sees Akshaye and Richa pitted against one another. Despite the knowledge that his client is guilty, Akshaye tries to manipulate the law and the available evidence to his advantage to discredit the survivor. As the case progresses, the morality of his actions are called into question: is it his duty to secure justice for the survivor or ensure his client wins the case?
Section 375 has been directed by Ajay Bahl (BA Pass) and backed by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat and Abhishek Pathak. It releases in theatres on 13 September.
