The dashing Ayushmann Khurrana from Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Savdhaan will be seen in the all new comedy film, Badhaai Ho. The movie will star Aamir Khan’s Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra, opposite to Ayushmann Khurrana. The film is expected to release in December 2018.
Badhaai Ho is a coming-of-age story. The film follows the impact of a certain unexpected news on a family and how the members deal with it in their own ways.
It will be directed by Amit Sharma, who made his film debut with the Arjun Kapoor – Sonakshi Sinha starrer Tevar. He has been working on the script for the last two-and-a-half years with his writers Akshat Ghildial and Shantanu Srivastava, since the former came up with a one-line story idea.
Amit informs that co-producer Priti Shahani had been working on a similar concept. But after reading each other’s scripts, they agreed that his was better and decided to collaborate.
On the catchy title, he adds that Badhaai Ho was the working title from day one, and while he had intended to change it along the way, he quickly realised that it’s simple, apt, quirky and a part of many people’s everyday lingo.
Speaking about the film, Amit said that Badhaai Ho is a relatable story. Amit also spoke about Ayushmann, who has done films on taboo subjects like sperm donation, body-shaming, and erectile dysfunction. Amit described the actor as a loveable and relatable actor.
The movie goes on floors today in Mumbai. The production house took to Twitter and shared two pictures to announce the commencement of the film’s shoot. In one of the pictures, the lead actor Ayushmann and the director Amit are seen posing with the clapperboard. The other image has a close-up of the clapperboard alone.
With Ayushmann Khurana alongside Sanya Malhotra, the audience will get to enjoy a fresh pair on screen. We cannot wait to watch the two together!
