Akshaye Khanna, who is all geared up for the release of his forthcoming film Section 375, feels that, more than educating the audience. Not only this, but he also stated how this film will start a debate and conversation among the audience.

Section 375 is based on Section 375 of Indian Penal Code laws in India. In the film, Richa Chadha plays a public prosecutor fighting to get justice for her client, who claims she has been raped by a filmmaker (Rahul Bhatt), being defended by Akshaye Khanna in court.

Akshaye Khanna accuses the victim of misusing Section 375 to falsely implicate his client Section 375. The film also explores the theme of whether a lawyer should defend a criminal or listen to his conscience.

Akshaye Khanna also said: "I feel the story of this film is relevant because, no matter which year you are living in, it concerns what is happening all around. I feel this film gives a holistic view of a particular case, whether you are a part of defence or prosecution, whether you are the judge or a normal person viewing it on television and reading about it in newspapers. So, all these angles have been taken into consideration while writing (the film)."

The actor added that more than educating the audience, Section 375 will start a debate among the audience about the issue. The courtroom drama is scheduled to be theatrically released in India on September 13.
