In the film, Rajkummar plays the role of a Delhi cop for the first time on-screen, who is the only male cop in a Mahila thana, while Bhumi plays a character completely different than what she has previously done or anyone else has in Bollywood so far – the role of a school PT teacher.
Talking about the film, Rajkummar said in a statement, “I am happy things are picking pace and the wheel is moving again. Badhaai Do is a special film for me. I am glad to take up this nuanced character who has layers of conflicts to resolve in and around him. As far as preparations are concerned, I have my own process of preparing a character and also this time it is the setting of this character in Badhaai Do that makes it unique. The audience is in for a surprise, which will unfold with time. I am happy to reconnect with the audience on the special occasion of Badhaai Ho anniversary, the film was an absolute delight and one of my most favourites.”
