Will Badhai Ho be Ayushmann's second hit in a fortnight?
Amit Ravindranath Sharma's Badhaai Ho has received ringing endorsements from the critics including our own.
The cast attended a special screening on Wednesday, October 17, with their friends.
Sanya Malhotra, who now has two releases after her breakout film Dangal: Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha and Badhai Ho. What's with Sanya's choice of footwear?
It is so wonderful that an actress of Neena Gupta's calibre is back in a substantial role. By the way Neena's sari and Gajraj Rao's look at the screening were created by star designer Masaba Gupta, Neena's daughter.
Gajraj Rao, who plays Neena's husband, is the film's surprise scenestealer.
If Badhai Ho does well at the box office, Ayushmann Khurrana will have two successes within a span of a fortnight.
Andhadun, in which he played a blind pianist, is doing well at the turnstiles.
How wonderful to see Tahira Kashyap at the screening. Get well soon Tahira!
Aparshakti Khurana, Ayushmann's brother and Sanya's Dangal co-star, has had a huge success himself this year in Stree.
