In a separate tweet, Taran Adarsh congratulated Ayushmann Khurana and wrote, “Ayushmann Khurrana has every reason to rejoice and celebrate… While #BadhaaiHo has already crossed $ 1 mn mark in USA-Canada, #AndhaDhun has now hit $ 1 mn mark in USA-Canada… Back-to-back million dollar films is certainly WOW! @comScore”.
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 Khurrana as the couple’s elder son and Sanya Malhotra as his love interest. The film also stars Surekha Sikri and Shardul Rana in pivotal roles.
In a recent interview with news agency IANS, director Amit Sharma was asked if he expected his film to get such great response and the director answered by saying, “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”.
The collections of the movie are expected to grow in the coming weeks.
