Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra starrer Badhaai Ho is still running successfully in cinemas and how. The movie which was lauded by the audience for the unique storyline and the interesting concept attracted the audience to the theatres on the opening day itself.

The film not only revolved around the story of the lead pairs Nakul and Renee but also around their families. The mess which starts with Nakul's mom getting pregnant at the time of her son's marriage is something that is not experimented till now.

Neena Gupta aced her role like a boss lady and there's no double thought about it. But did you know that she was not the initial choice for the role? Yes, the makers of the film approached Tabu first but she rejected the role and said that Neena is the best choice.

"We had gone to Tabu ji for the role. At that time, we had a different script in mind and we wanted Tabu ma'am and Irrfan Khan sir. When she heard the script, she suggested Neenaji's name for her character. Tabu felt, perhaps rightly, that she looked like a woman who can still have a child" said, director Amit, while interacting with a leading portal.

Also, it was Ayushmann who recommended Gajraj Rao's name for the father's part.

Well, Badhaai Ho turns to be the highest grosser of Ayushmann as it has crossed 61 crores mark in one week.
