After impressing the audience with his exceptional performances in 2017’s two highly successful films ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, actor Ayushmann Khurrana has started shooting for his next movie, ‘Badhaai Ho’. Khurrana started preparing for his role on 8th January and today his movie hit the shooting floor.
The coming-of-age movie with a tinge of romance features Sanya Malhotra as the leading lady. The actress was last seen in the Nitesh Tiwari directorial ‘Dangal’ (2016), which turned out to be the biggest blockbuster of Hindi cinema ever. ‘Badhaai Ho’ marks her first collaboration with popular actor Ayushmann Khurrana.
Talking about the film, Ayushmann had earlier told a daily, “I had a fantastic experience collaborating with Junglee Pictures for Bareilly Ki Barfi and working with them on Badhaai Ho is going to be exciting. The story that Amit tells is typically Indian with dollops of quirky humour. I look forward to a family film that is innovative and entertaining.”
‘Badhaai Ho’ is being directed by well-known ad filmmaker Amit Sharma, who made his directorial debut with the Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Tevar’ (2015). Though his debut film could not spell any magic at the box office, he hopes the audience loves his second outing.
“It’s very real and easy to relate to. What is funny for others is a matter of concern for the family. I hope one day soon people will tell me ‘Badhaai Ho’ too, after watching the film,” Sharma had said earlier.
‘Badhaai Ho’ is written by Akshat Ghildial and Shantanu Srivastava. The film is being produced by Junglee Pictures.
