Rajkummar Rao, who will be playing the role of a Delhi police officer in the movie, said, “I have played a cop before but never with this perspective. I look for layered characters and this one is a perfect match. My character is surrounded by strong women at home and at work and that adds immense depth to his personality. Harshavardhan and Bhumi are both dear friends and extremely talented artists. Junglee Pictures’ Bareilly Ki Barfi was a fabulous experience for me. So, Badhaai Do is a reunion in many ways.” Also Read - Chhalaang: Nushrat Bharucha-Rajkummar Rao Encourage Long Sleep Before Leap in First Look Poster
