Here's what Neena Gupta posted.
Badhaai Ho, Neena Gupta!
Badhaai Ho has made over Rs 100 crore at the box office (and still counting). The current total of the film is Rs 119.30 crore as of now.
Of signing the film, Neena Gupta told news agency IANS, "I did not even read the script of the film because the subject was so interesting. Female actors of our age don't get a chance to play such interesting characters. This phase of our life is not addressed only in our Hindi cinema. But I think the change is happening because of the youngsters who are writing such scripts."
Badhaai Ho is directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and also stars Surekha Sikri.
