New Delhi, Sept 14: Recently, the trailer of Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra-starrer Badhaai Ho has been released. And, just after the release, it has already gone viral. The trailer begins with Nakul’s (Ayushmann) father (Gajraj Rao) awkwardly breaking the news of his wife’s (Neena Gupta) accidental pregnancy to his two sons, Nakul being the elder one.
Nakul has already attained the age to get married and when he heard the news he finds it tough to come to terms with the fact when he decide to break the news to his girlfriend Sanya.
The trailer highlights perfectly the awkwardness amongst elders when it comes to ‘taboo’ topics such as pregnancy and sex education. In an earlier interview, 33-year-old Khurrana explained his reason to star in such informative films. “As I go by my instinct, this was one of the films that I wanted to be a part of because of the story. I felt the same during Dum Laga Ke Haisha when I took no time to agree to do the film. I think such a quirky subject and story-driven films are my zone,” he said.
“I think I would react like the way my character in the film reacted because it is really awkward and embarrassing to know that at the age of 50 our parents are becoming parents again,” he continued.
The remaining part of the trailer gives us highlights of the fun, mad roller-coaster ride that the film is going to be. While this is the first Bollywood film about old-age pregnancy, Hollywood’s Father of the Bride 2 touched upon a similar theme.
The writers of the film, Shantanu Srivastava, Akshat Ghildial and Jyoti Kapoor have done a stellar job with witty dialogues. Director Amit Ravindernath Sharma has ensured that a topic usually slipped under the carpet, is brought to the fore in a humourous yet engaging manner.
