Read Taran’s tweet:

Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, Badhaai Ho casts Ayushmann as the son of an elderly couple, who discover that they would be turning parents for the third time. The film has been received well by critics also.

In the meantime, Saif Ali Khan’s Baazaar isn’t performing as expected and has earned Rs 13.4 crore within five days of its release. The film is expected to earn Rs 15.75 crore net in its first week. While Baazaar is faring well in Mumbai, its collections in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh are comparatively less.

Baazaar, set in the backdrop of money, power and business, has been received well by critics though. Directed by Gauravv K. Chawla, Baazaar co-stars Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh.
