Some movies just have what it takes to succeed, and one such movie is Badhaai Ho starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra in lead roles. From earning Rs 66.10 crore in the first week itself to now almost touching Rs 140 crore in total at the box office, the movie is not showing any signs of slowing down. The plot of the comedy-drama seems to have touched the right cord with the audience.
Badhaai Ho has already passed movie Raazi where earnings are concerned, and according to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who had tweeted out the earnings of the movie, it is a one horse race that will not slow down anytime soon.
Despite a big release like Thugs of Hindostan featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, Badhaai Ho managed to maintain a steady grip at the box office. With a great response from the audience, the film has made its place in the top 10 overseas openings of 2018. It has also managed to make its mark abroad in countries like USA, Canada and Australia.
Badhaai Ho is a movie that showcases the ups and downs a family goes through after a middle-aged married couple (played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao) expect another child. Ayushmann plays the role of the elder son of the couple and Sanya his love interest. The film also stars Surekha Sikri and Shardul Rana in pivotal roles.
The comedy-drama film was directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, produced by Vineet Jain, Hemant Bhandari and Aleya Sen under the banner of Junglee Pictures and Chrome Pictures, and was written by Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial. The songs were composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Rochak Kohli and JAM8. The lyrics were written by Vayu, Kumaar and MellowD.
