Ayushmann Khurrana starrer laughter riot film Badhaai Ho is unstoppable at the box office.

Ever since its announcement, the romantic comedy had a great buzz around it due to its unique subject. Within a week of its terrific opening at the ticket window, Badhaai Ho earned Rs 66.10 crore at the domestic box-office. The movie has done incredible business as the weeks progressed. Thugs Of Hindostan starring Bollywood biggies, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan hit the skids at the box office due to it’s lacking script and terrible performances.
When director Amit R Sharma was asked about the phenomenal response, he replied, "You can't write or direct a film thinking that whether it will work. When you write a film, you hope that it will do well. There has to be a positive demand or approach that the film on which we are working on should do well."
Badhaai Ho narrates the story of a Railway Ticket Collector (Gajraj Rao) who lives in New Delhi with his spouse (Neena Gupta), two grown-up children (Ayushmann Khurrana and Shardul Ran) and his mother (Surekha Sikri). News breaks out that his wife is pregnant which comes like a shock to the entire family. The news tickles the rib as it leaves Ayushmann Khurrana shamefaced. The rest of the movie is woven around nosey neighbours, nasty relatives and garish weddings in the very middle-class society where the ‘Kaushiks’ inhabit.
Ayushmann Khurrana's recent outings Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho have the bull's eye at the Box Office making him a bankable star. Other than Ayushmann Khurrana, the movie features Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Surekha Sikhri and Sanya Malhotra in pivotal roles.
