Director Amit Sharma and his leading man Ayushmann Khurrana both said no to the Badhaai Ho sequel.
Apparently the Badhaai Ho producers Junglee Pictures offered the sequel to the original director and leading man. However both Sharma and Khurrana want to avoid repeating themselves.
Hence Badhaai Do went to Rajkummar Rao,
Confirming this Rao says, “Yes, that is happening. Harshvardhan Kulkarni is directing.”
While Rao won’t divulge any more detail it is understood that he and Bhumi Pednekar will play two misfits who come together.
