Anubhav Sinha's critically-acclaimed Article 15, revolved around the caste divide in the country and starred Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role of a police officer.
Kapoor’s had previously produced Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Pink.
In an interview to Firstpost, Kapoor shed light on his strategy of remaking content-driven Hindi films in Tamil and vice versa, "A good film should reach as many people as possible. My first film as a producer was Hum Paanch in Hindi, which itself was a remake of Kannada film Paduvaaralli Pandavaru. After that, I have produced remakes of many films from Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. Also, I would say that Nerkonda Paarvai’s success has given me the confidence that a good film never fails to get appreciated irrespective of the language. The idea is to make content that is good, stories worth telling."
Meanwhile, Boney Kapoor is also producing Ajith's upcoming film, Valimai, directed by H. Vinoth. He also holds the South remake rights of Khurrana’s Badhaai Ho.
