Mohnish Singh |Mar 09, 2020

Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar are coming together for the first time. Badhaai Do, a sequel to Badhaai Ho, is set to start rolling soon.

Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar, two powerhouse performers of Bollywood, have joined hands to star together in the upcoming Hindi film, Badhaai Do. As the title suggests itself, the movie is a sequel to the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer National Award-winning film, Badhaai Ho.

Junglee Pictures confirmed the sequel to the hit family comedy Badhaai Ho earlier today. The production house also revealed that Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar have been roped in to portray the lead characters. Badhaai Do will revolve around an unlikely relationship and is promising to double the fun and emotions.

According to reports, Rajkummar Rao will be seen playing the role of a Delhi cop, while Pednekar takes on the role of a school PT teacher, much to the chagrin of her family. The comic-caper is the about the goof ups that follow when they meet and their lives intertwine in more than one way imagined. Harshavardhan Kulkarni has been signed on to helm the project.

Talking about his role in Badhaai Do, Rajkummar Rao said that he has played cop before but never with this perspective. He added that he looks for layered characters and this is a perfect match. His character is surrounded by strong women at home and work and that adds immense depth to his personality. Rao said that Harshavardhan and Bhumi are both dear friends of him and extremely talented artists. Junglee Pictures’ Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) was a fabulous experience for his. Badhaai Do is a reunion in many ways.

Bhumi Pednekar said that Badhaai Ho is one of her most favourite films in recent times and it is really exciting to take this franchise forward. For her, the script is one of the best that she has ever come across and she immediately wanted to do this film. Her character again is strong, independent and author-backed and it gives her a lot of scope to bring a very different and cool character to life. She added that this time too, the film will say something extremely relevant and relatable but in the most hilarious manner and the film has its heart rooted in family values.

Badhaai Do will commence production in June and releases in early 2021.
