Badhaai Ho is continuing its winning streak at the box office and has emerged as a massive hit not only in India but overseas too. The movie, which stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra in lead roles, has touched the right chord with the audience. It is also said to have taken over Baahubali 2‘s sixth week collection. Badhaai Ho‘s total box office collection is believed to be close to Rs 140 crore.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the overseas earnings of Badhaai Ho, saying the numbers are higher than any other star-studded film that opened in 2018. The total earnings from US, Canada and Australia are enormous.
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.
The story of the movie revolves around a family where a middle-aged married couple (played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao) expect another child. It beautifully showcases how they deal with society. 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.
