With great response from the audience, the film has made its place in the top 10 overseas openings in 2018. Not only in India, but Badhaai Ho is also raking in big numbers in Australia.
The film did not release in Madhya Pradesh due to the ongoing theatre strike. Otherwise, the collection would have been higher.
Badhaai Ho was fighting the box office battle with Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor’s Namaste England. Ayushmann’s movie has emerged as the clear winner.
Badhaai Ho is directed by Amit Sharma. It is a comedy drama where Nina Gupta’s (Ayushmann mother) character gets pregnant at an older age leaving everyone in the family as well as outside in shock. The film beautifully portrays the embarrassment of the two sons when they came to know about their mother’s pregnancy.
The film also features actress Sanya Malhotra, who plays the role of Ayushmann’s love interest.
The collections of the movie are expected to grow in the coming days.
On a related note, Ayushmann also received praises for his performance in Andhadhun. The film featured Tabu and Radhika Apte with the actor. It performed well at the box office.
