Actors Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar have started shooting for their upcoming film Badhaai Do. Rajkummar posted a picture along with Bhumi, posing with the film’s clapboard.
Alongside the image, he wrote in Hindi, “Shuru ho gai hai hamari kahani, Jahan hai dono Raja aur Rani, Shardul Aur Sumi hai ekdam pyaare, Yeh dono hai situation ke maare. Milenge hum aapse jald, Ho jayega tab sab clear aur tab hum kahengey (our story has begun, it has a king and queen. Shardul and Sumi are cute. Both of them are trapped in a situation. We will meet you and everything will be clear then) #BadhaaiDo #2021.”
Badhaai Do is the second instalment in the Badhaai Ho franchise. While the first film starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra, the new film will see Rajkummar and Bhumi taking the franchise forward.
In the film, Rajkummar plays the only male officer in a mahila thana in Delhi. Pednekar will reportedly play a police officer and a PT teacher. The film is directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni, who helmed the Gulshan Devaiah-starrer comedy Hunterr (2015), and is written by Suman Adhikary and Akshat Ghildial, who earlier wrote Badhaai Ho. –ians/dc/vnc
