One of the best on-screen love stories of 2018 was that of Jitender and Priyamvada Kaushik’s in Badhaai Ho. The middle-aged couple, played by the lovely Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta, live in New Delhi’s cramped government quarters with their two sons and a crabby mother-in-law (Surekha Sikhri). Their elder son Nakul (Ayushmann Khurrana) is in a steady relationship with his colleague (Sanya Malhotra) and is trying to impress his snooty to-be mother-in-law (Sheeba Chaddha). Trouble strikes when Nakul learns that his parents are expecting another child. His girlfriend’s uptight mother declares, “His family is a circus I don’t want to buy tickets to”.
Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and written by Shantanu Srivastava and Akshat Ghildial, Badhaai Ho is a heartwarming love story about an elderly couple dealt with humour and sensitivity. The film was also one of the biggest box office successes of the year. You can now read the script by clicking the download button below:
