Mumbai: Ayushmann Khurrana is currently riding high on success with his two back-to-bacl releases - Shubh Mangal Savdhan and Bareilly ki Barfi.
Reportedly, Ayushmann has given nod to his next movie that will also star Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' fame Sanya Malhotra opposite him.
Amit Sharma, who made his Bollywood directorial debut with Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer 'Tevar' in 2015, will be directing Ayushmann-Sanya’s Badhai Ho. He asserted, "It’s very real and easy to relate to. What is funny for others is a matter of concern for the family. I hope one day soon people will tell me ‘Badhai Ho’ too, after watching the film.”
While confirming the news, Ayushmann said, “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.”
The co-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.”
Badhai Ho is expected to go on floors by the end of January next year.
