Amit Sharma’s Badhaai Ho was one of the biggest hits of 2018. The film starred Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Surekha Sikri, and Sanya Malhotra. Apart from making big moolah at the box office, the movie also received many awards including National Awards for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment and Best Supporting Actress award (Surekha Sikri).

Now according to a report in a tabloid, the makers of Badhaai Ho are planning a sequel to the film. A source said, “The script has been locked, and the makers are on the lookout to finalise on the cast.”

“The second instalment will revolve around the shenanigans of a joint family and two young couples. It will take off next year,” added the source.

After the film won a National Award, producer of the film Vineet Jain told the tabloid, “Junglee Pictures has always believed in telling impactful stories in the most engaging manner. This recognition in the form of a National Award is truly gratifying. I am proud of the team for putting together such a delightful yet meaningful film.”

While talking about Badhaai Ho’s win at the National Awards, Ayushmann had said, “With Badhaai Ho again I took up a taboo topic because I believed that people would be ok to see this kind of cinema. I’m glad that a subject like Badhaai Ho also won big today and I congratulate my director Amit Sharma for his breakthrough script that became a talking point in every household. It was a pleasure to collaborate with a forward-thinking creative mind like him and again disrupt the stereotyped notions of what Hindi cinema should be.”

Well, we would surely love to see the same star cast in the sequel as well. Meanwhile, Ayushmann will also be seen in the sequel to 2017 release Shubh Mangal Saavdhan which is titled as Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan. While the first instalment of the series spoke about erectile dysfunction, the second instalment will have homosexuality as its basic concept.
