Sanya Malhotra will be seen alongside Ayushmann Khurrana in what will be a coming-of-age family drama, as the family is struck with an unexpected news, and the film will revolve around how every individual in the family deals with the news in their own ways. Talking about the film earlier, Ayushmann said, “I had a fantastic experience collaborating with Junglee Pictures for Bareilly Ki Barfi and working with them on Badhaai Ho is going to be exciting. The story that Amit tells is typically Indian with dollops of quirky humour. I look forward to a family film that is innovative and entertaining.” Sanya has also signed up for a film opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui, which will be directed by director Ritesh Batra, whose previous outing was The Lunchbox (2013).
