New Delhi [India], November 24 (ANI): Three months after the hit romcom 'Bareilly Ki Barfi,' Ayushmann Khurrana is "excited" to reunite with Junglee Pictures for another comedy film 'Badhaai Ho,' which will start rolling at the end of January in Delhi.

Confirming the news, Ayushmann said, "I had a fantastic experience collaborating with Junglee Pictures for 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' and working with them on 'Badhaai Ho' is going to be exciting."

"The story that Amit tells is typically Indian with dollops of quirky humour. I look forward to a family film that is both innovative and entertaining," he added.

The director and writer of the film, Amit Sharma has been working on the script for the last two-and-a-half years.

Amit said, "It's very real and easy to relate to. What is funny for others is a matter of serious concern for the family."

On his choice of casting Khurana in such offbeat roles, Amit stated that the 'Meri Pyaari Bindu' star, who had brought taboo subjects like sperm donation, body-shaming and erectile dysfunction to the screen convincingly, is a likeable and relatable actor.

Talking about the catchy title, Amit said the title 'Badhaai Ho' is simple, apt and quirky.

Amit has helmed over a 1000 ad films, including the one on Google Reunion and a short film for Kashmir Tourism, and made his feature film debut with the Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha starrer 'Tevar' in 2015.

The movie is scheduled to go on floors in January, 2018. (ANI)
