Ayushmann Khurrana’s family comedy Badhaai Ho has put up an excellent show at the ticket window. The film, which is running in its third week now, is still busy minting money at the box-office.
On its third Monday, the Amit Sharma-directed affair raked in ₹ 1.45 crore, taking its 19-day total to a mammoth ₹ 105.45 crore. With this, the movie did not only enter the prestigious ₹ 100 crore club, but also surpassed the lifetime collection of superstar Akshay Kumar’s critically and commercially successful film Gold, which had pocketed ₹ 104.72 crore by the end of its lifetime run.
Badhaai Ho revolves around a Delhi-based family that finds itself completely unable to deal with the embarrassment that an unplanned, unexpected pregnancy of a middle-aged woman in the house causes.
Besides Ayushmann Khurrana, the successful movie also stars Sanya Malhotra, Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta and Surekha Sikri in important roles. Powerful performances by the entire star cast coupled with excellent writing are being cited as reason for the runaway success of the film.
