The trailer got a great response and the hit was a critical and commercial success. The source further informed the paper, “The second instalment will revolve around the shenanigans of a joint family and two young couples.

Badhaai Ho also gave a new lease of life to Neena Gupta’s career. Post the win, she said, “Yes I am very happy, I had forgotten the National Film Awards weren’t held till now. They are late this time because of elections. Suddenly I came to know about them from Twitter and I couldn’t believe it we got two awards…three awards in a way. I will say three because Ayushmann bhi hume apna hi lagta hai, who got the Best Actor for Andhadhun. I am so happy.” Stay tuned for more updates!
