Badhaai Ho, one of the biggest hits of 2018, is set for remakes in four popular Indian languages e.g. Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
Producer Boney Kapoor, who is presently busy remaking the Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer courtroom drama Pink (2016) in Tamil, has acquired rights to remake Badhaai Ho in all the above mentioned South Indian languages.
“Yes, I have acquired the rights to all the South languages. It’s a film that resonates with both the masses and classes, so I was keen on remaking it,” confirmed Boney Kapoor.
The producer added that he is confident that the remakes will do well down South just like the Hindi version fared well in the Hindi heartland. “The Hindi version has done extremely well in the heartland, in fact, across the country, and I am confident the reception down South will be as overwhelming. I am yet to decide whether the Tamil or the Telugu version go on the floors first as it is work in progress.”
Set in Delhi, Badhaai Ho revolves around a 25-year-old man who is awkwardly dealing with the unexpected news of an untimely pregnancy of his elderly parents! The film stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao in important roles.
