Filmmaker Amit Sharma’s Badhaai Ho, featuring actors Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao, has entered the Rs 100 crore club. The film crossed this milestone on the seventeenth day of its release. The numbers were shared by trade analyst Taran Adarsh on social media. Badhaai Ho has become the tenth film of the year to enter the coveted club.
Taran took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “#BadhaaiHo remains UNSHAKABLE and UNSTOPPABLE even in Week 3… Crosses ₹ 100 cr on Day 17… [Week 3] Fri 2.35 cr, Sat 3.50 cr. Total: ₹ 100.10 cr. India biz.”
He also tweeted, “I repeat, ₹ 100 cr Club is *not* the yardstick to gauge the success of a film, but it ought to be celebrated when mid-sized films like #SKTKS, #Raazi, #Stree and #BadhaaiHo [racing towards ₹ 100 cr] hit century… Reinforces the fact that good content will always find takers.”
Not only in India, the film has also performed well at the international box office.

Badhaai Ho is a family-comedy that showcases the journey of an elderly couple (played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao) who are expecting another child. The film features Ayushmann as the couple’s elder son and Sanya as his love interest.
Earlier, while speaking about the film’s response, Amit revealed to IANS, “You can’t write or direct a film thinking that whether it will work. When you write a film, you hope that it will do well. There has to be a positive demand or approach that the film on which we are working on should do well.”
It seems like the year belongs to Ayushmann. His film Andhadhun also featuring Radhika Apte and Tabu was praised by the audience. The movie performed well at the box office. It was directed by Sriram Raghavan.
