- Ayushmann Khurrana begins new film
- The film is titled Badhaai Ho
- Badhaai Ho will also star Sanya Malhotra
Earlier, sharing his excitement about working in the film and with Junglee Pictures once again, Ayushmann had told the Reuters: "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."
Ayushmann Khurrana made his Bollywood debut with Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor, which was based on the topic of sperm donation. Ayushmann received Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for the film. He also starred in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, which was a box office success while Sanya Malhotra made her full-fledged Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan's 2016 Dangal, which turned out to be a huge success not only in India but also overseas. Soon after Dangal's blockbuster status, Sanya's co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh was roped in for another Aamir Khan movie - Thugs Of Hindostan - but there was no word on Sanya's upcoming projects. Sanya also has a film with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the pipeline, to be directed by Ritesh Batra.
