After the success of Bareilly Ki Barfi, actor Ayushmann Khurrana has decided to team up with Junglee Pictures again for his next film. Titled Badhaai Ho, the film will be directed by Amit Sharma, who made his directorial debut with Tevar in 2015. 

Speaking to the tabloid Mumbai Mirror, Khurrana 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 innovative and entertaining." 

Sharma, who has close to 1000 ad films to his credit, worked for 2-years on the script, along with writers Akshat Ghadial and Shantanu Shrivastava. The film is reported to revolve around the story of a family that faces an unexpected news, and they are coming to terms with it.

Co-producer Priti Sharma said, "Our release for this year, Bareilly Ki Barfi, received much love from the audience. It has been fantastic working with Ayushmann and we are now looking forward to collaborating with him again on Badhaai Ho. Amit is an exceptional director as is evident from his body of work. We couldn’t have asked for a better team coming together to tell this story." 

There is still speculation over the lead actress to be cast opposite Khurrana in the film. The actor also has Sriram Raghavan's next, Shoot The Piano Player, scheduled to be released in the next year.
