Producer Boney Kapoor has acquired the rights of 2018's surprise hit "Badhaai Ho" and will be remaking the film in all the south Indian languages. Directed by Amit Sharma, "Badhaai Ho" featured Surekha Sikri, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra.
"I have acquired the rights to all the South languages. It's a film that resonates with both the masses and classes so I was keen on on remaking it. The Hindi version has done extremely well in the heartland, in fact, across the country and I am confident the reception down South will be as overwhelming.
"I am yet to decide whether the Tamil or the Telugu version go on the floors first as it's work in progress," Kapoor said in a statement.
Produced by Junglee pictures and Chrome pictures, the film had a dream run at the box office earning over 200 crores worldwide.
