Good news for all Ayushmann Khurrana fans out there!
Ayushmann Khurrana is currently high on the success of his this year's films Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Now the charming actor confirms another exciting news for all his fans. He is all set to collaborate with Bareilly Ki Barfi team once again for his next project titled 'Badhai Ho'. But this time with a different director; Amit Sharma who made his directorial debut with Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starring film Tevar is all set to make a family drama movie.
Confirming the news, Ayushmann says, "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."
According to some reports, director Amit has been working on the script for the last two-and-a-half years with his writers, Akshat Ghildial and Shantanu Srivastava. According to Amit, "It's very real and easy to relate to. What is funny for others is a matter of concern for the family." He also informed 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.
Producer Priti said, "Our release for this year, 'Bareilly Ki Barfi', received much love from the audience. It has been fantastic working with Ayushmann and we are now looking forward to collaborate with him again on 'Badhaai Ho'. Amit is an exceptional director as is evident from his body of work. We couldn't have asked for a better team coming together to tell this story."
On his choice of his unlikely hero, Amit told media that Ayushmann who had brought taboo subjects like sperm donation, body-shaming and erectile dysfunction to the screen earlier convincingly, is a likeable and relatable actor.
Badhaai Ho is a coming-of-age story. The film follows the impact of a certain news on a family and how the members deal with it in their own way. The leading lady of the film is not confirmed yet. But there is a buzz that Dangal girl Sanaya Malhotra will be paired opposite Ayushmann.
On the work front, Ayushmann is currently busy in filming his upcoming movie Shoot the Piano Player directed by Sriram Raghavan.
