Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadha are bringing forth a gripping courtroom drama titled Section 375. The teaser of the film dropped today. Akshaye plays a best-in-the-business defense lawyer while Richa plays a tough nut public prosecutor arguing for the victim played by Meera Chopra. The film is directed by Ajay Bahl and is based on real-life incidents.
In the teaser, we get to hear Akshaye giving statistics on the rape cases in India and the percentage of the cases that come to a culmination where justice is served. Richa comes with a strong statement that a rape accused often walks free to which Akshaye counters that a rape accused can never be free. Section 375 pertains to anti-rape laws in the Indian Penal Code and the film borrows its name from this. The film focuses on the misuse of anti-rape laws.
