“Aye @RajkummarRao time to say #BadhaaiDo, milte hain set pe, January 2021. Bring it on @JungleePictures #HarshavardhanKulkarni #AkshatGhildial @sumadhikary,” the actor wrote.
Badhaai Do pairs Bhumi Pednekar and Rajkummar Rao for the first time. The film, which will reportedly see Rajkummar as a cop and Bhumi in the role of a PT teacher, will be directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni. It is penned by Suman Adhikary and Akshay Ghildial, who also wrote the dialogues of Badhaai Ho.
The 2018 Badhaai Ho, directed by Amit Sharma, was a story of a middle-aged couple (Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao) who get pregnant. Ayushmann Khurrana played their son. The film also starred Surekha Sikri, who won the best supporting actor honour at the 2019 National Awards for her role of a matriarch.
