Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar are set to star in the lead of 2018 sleeper hit Badhaai Ho. Titled Badhaai Do said to be set in the same milieu but with a fresh set of characters and situations this time around.
According to the reports, the story of the film revolves around a married couple in which one or both parties are homosexual.
“Lavander marriage is described as a marriage between a man and a woman in which one or both parties are homosexual. Also called a marriage of convenience, it’s done to hide one or both partners’ sexuality to protect public reputations. Badhaai Do taps this same relevant social issue but in the most hilarious manner just like the first part. The film is about the goof-ups that follow when a gay and a lesbian (played by Rajkummar and Bhumi respectively) get married to each other due to their family pressure,” a source close to the project was quoted by a daily.
The film is said to be as entertaining as Badhaai Ho. The film will see Rajkummar Rao playing the role of the only male cop in a Mahila Thana while Bhumi Pednekar essays a PT teacher who aspires to play handball for India’s national team.
“A Lavander marriage looks like a typical marriage but in reality, the couple lives apart and led entirely separate lives. They are pressured to live a double life in the fear of being disowned by society. Badhaai Do fights this taboo sensitively and with gentle humour,” added the source!
