Actors Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar have been shooting for the most anticipated movie Badhaai Do, a sequel to the National Award winning comedy drama Badhaai ho in Uttarakhand. Pednekar on Wednesday took to social media to share the glimpses of herself as Sumi and Rao as Shardul from the sets of the film.
Sharing the picture with her co-star Rao from the film’s set, she wrote in Hindi, Do mastane chale zindagi banane, Bande sayane aur naam ke deewane #SumiAurShardul #BadhaaiDo @rajkummar_rao.(two happy souls, both clever and somewhat romantic went to create life).
The photo showed both of them in their movie character. Rao sported a thick moustache and Pednekar wore a pink kurta. Both can be seen lying on their backs, while covering themselves with a light blanket.
Earlier, the actor also posted pictures of the first day of shoot, which she captioned it as, 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, #BadhaaiDo #2021.
The makers began shooting the film earlier in January in Delhi. Directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni, the film is written by Suman Adhikary and Akshat Ghildial, who had co-written Badhaai Ho. In the film, Rao will be seen portraying the role of a Delhi cop while Pednekar essays the role of primary school PT teacher.
The first part of the franchise, Badhaai Ho(2018) featured Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao. The film was critically acclaimed and was the blockbuster hit of the year.
Meanwhile, Pednekar was last seen in horror thriller, Durgamati. Apart from Badhaai Do, the actor will next be seen in Karan Johar’s period drama Takht, along with an ensemble cast including Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt among others.
On the other hand, Rao will next be seen in Hardik Mehta’s horror comedy titled Roohi Afzana. The film also stars Jahnvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma.
