After sharing a photograph of him along with Sanya Malhotra on Instagram, Ayushmann Khurrana has announced that Badhaai Ho is all set to release on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra and will hit the theatres on October 19, 2018.

A few days ago, while talking about Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann had said, “Yes, it is again a quirky film; I think I own the quirky film genre. Agar koi actor aise film Karna chahata hai, he should be told, ‘Ayushmann ke type ki film kar Rahe ho (laughs)’.

The best part of my character in the film is that he’s very urban in the office space and very desi when he’s home. Most middle-class Delhi guys are like that. They speak English in office, par Ghar pe koi English bolta hi Nahi. It’s a very cool story, though I can’t reveal too much about it.”

Badhaai Ho is an upcoming Bollywood film which will witness Ayushmann Khurrana and Dangal girl Sanya Malhotra for the first time together. Ayushmann is known for his quirky film choices, and hence, a lot of speculations surrounded this film

Badhaai Ho is reportedly a coming-of-age story of a family as it grapples with some unexpected news. The film will showcase the impact of the news on the family and how its members deal with it in their own unique way.

The film is produced under the banner of Junglee Pictures and Chrome Pictures and is directed by Amit Sharma.

Ayushmann will also be seen in AndhaDhun, where he is playing a blind pianist. He is paired opposite Radhika Apte in the film.
