Leave it to Ayushmann Khurrana to pick the quirkiest subject and scripts and make them mainstream Bollywood. The trailer of his next film, Bhadhaai Ho is no different, except it is.
Gauging from the first posters of the film and it’s title, there were clues of the badhayiaan [celebratory wishes] being to welcome a new baby. However, the trailer bust all myths about it being a pregnancy story.
Bhadhaai Ho is about a Delhi-based family of parents, two adult sons and a grandmother; what’s interesting is that it’s the elderly mother who is unexpectedly expecting. Shocked by the news, everyone is embarrassed with the situation and find ways to cope with the “sexcapade.”
The situation of an unlikely pregnancy of an old couple is unnatural and unconventional for a middle-class Indian family, and the trailer certainly highlights society’s discomfort and perhaps even hypocrisy. Let’s see how the story unfolds on October 19, 2018.
Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film stars Neena Gupta as Khurrana’s mother, Sanya Malhotra as his girlfriend along with Surekha Sikri, Gajraj Rao and Sheeba Chaddha.

Rating Prediction: [3 / 5]
Actress Neena Gupta is back and is so effortless on camera. Badhaai Ho is layered comedy-drama with the right amount of quirks.
