Ayushmann Khurrana is back with yet another rib-tickling comedy, Badhaai Ho, the trailer for which, was released on Tuesday.
Badhaai Ho trailer showcases Ayushmann as a man embarrassed by his parents’ active sex lives and the consequences of it. His mother—played by Neena Gupta in an impressive comeback to big screen—gets pregnant when most women her age would be on the brink of menopause.
As his nervous father—played by Gajraj Rao— breaks the ‘good news’ to the entire middle class family, everyone’s cheeks turns red of sheer second hand embarrassment.
Of course, they can’t digest that a couple who should be playing with their grandkids are still busy making more kids of their own. The awkwardness is so thick in the family, you can cut through it with a knife. But thankfully for us, it’s pure comedy gold.
The trailer delivers the cheekiest dialogues like the shocked angry old grandma—played by Surekha Sikri—saying, “Ab sab samajh aa rahi, kyun bahu ka badan toota kare hai roj subah (I understand it all now, why the daughter-in-law complains of body ache every morning),” to the mortified couple.
Ayushmann, even in the throes of passion with his girlfriend—played by Sanya Malhotra—could not help but take a pause and ask her, “Tu hi bata yaar, ye bhi koi mummy papa ke karne ki cheez hai kya? (You tell me, is this a thing mummy papa should enjoy at their age?)”
Sanya Malhotra plays Ayushmann’s girlfriend in the film. Apart from Neena Gupta and Ayushmann Khurrana, the film also stars Surekha Sikri, Gajraj Rao and Sheeba Chaddha.
Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and written by Shanatanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial, the film is a comedy which has a strong ensemble cast.
Ayushmann Khurrana tweeted the trailer and wrote, “Dekh lo sab log! Jaanni thi na ‘khush khabri’? Here’s the trailer of #BadhaaiHo!”
