It has been a few days since Ayushmann Khurrana starrer AndhaDhun hit the screens, the film also stars Tabu and Radhika Apte in pivotal roles. While AndhaDhun is doing a great run at the box office, another Ayushmann starrer is set to hit the screens.
Yes, we are talking about his movie 'Badhaai Ho'. The film's story revolves around an elderly couple who are expecting their third child and how it becomes a moment of embarrassment for the family.
The roles which are played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao were previously offered to Tabu and Irrfan Khan. Director Amit Sharma says he had first approached Tabu and Irrfan Khan to play the role of an elderly couple who are expecting a baby in Badhaai Ho but the duo felt they would not look convincing for the role.
He also told that It was Tabu who suggested him Neena's name for this film as per the character and the film's plot we needed to cast someone who looks perfect for the role. The director said when he spoke to Irrfan, regarding the project, there was a similar suggestion.
“When we thought of Irrfan and Tabu, we thought that they would be the best husband and wife. But both of them said though they’re relatable and have worked as pairs on screen. But if we have a father who isn’t as fit and the mother slightly older, it’ll be more relatable,”
The film is set to hit the screens on 19th October.
