After entertaining us with Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, last year actor Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to feature in Junglee Pictures Badhaai Ho. The actor is paired opposite the Dangaal girl Sanya Malhotra, who made her debut with Aamir Khan as his daughter. Both the actors started their readings and workshops for Badhaai Ho earlier in January, the cast for the film has begun shooting today.
Badhaai Ho which is a coming of age story with a tinge of romance is directed by Amit Sharma who had earlier directed Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Tevar. Talking about the film and its preparations, Sanya had said in an official statement earlier that, “I am really happy to be an actor first. Whenever anything interesting comes up, I want to try it out and play parts that excite me creatively, it won’t be anything rigorous. Thankfully, I am not wrestling in this one.”
And while this is Ayushmann Khurrana’s second outing with Junglee pictures, the actor was super excited when had told the media earlier that, “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 both innovative and entertaining.”
While the film is going to tickle our funny bone in the right proportion, speaking about it, Amit had earlier said that “It’s very real and easy to relate to. What is funny for others is a matter of serious concern for the family.”
