The film Badhai Ho marked new beginnings for all its actors. The film directed by Amit Sharma carved out a niche for actors Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta, which now has resulted in mass followings of the actors. Veteran actress Surekha Sikri took it a notch up with her fantastic performance and stealing the show for the most part.

The film has completed three years today. The Ayushamann Khurana and Sanya Malhotra starrer film, was substantial, funny and witty, meanwhile also not derailing itself from its main focus, a social commentary on becoming new parents in your late fifties.

One of the unlikely characters who stole the show in the film was played by senior actress Surekha Sikri. Her presence in the film was so strong that the lead actors were borderline subsided. She also won The National Film Award for Supporting Actor for her performance in the film.

The film revolved around a middle-aged government official Jeetendra Kaushik (Gajraj Rao) and his wife Priyamvada(Neena Yadav) who are about to become parents a third time, in their fifties. Their eldest son played by Ayushmann Khurana felt jeopardized after hearing the news. Along with neighbors and their family members, all started poking and taunting the couple.

Surekha Sikri delivered some of the ROFL dialogues in the film which caused audiences to gaga over her. Taking a dig at Jeetendra’s government job in the Railways, she said, “Apne aap ko sarkari naukar batao. Jab sarkar ki baat hi nhi samajh aari to itne sal se naukri kaisi (You call yourself a government servant but what have you done all these years when you could not understand the government’s family planning campaign).”

However, things became easier, as the film showed that there is a lot of love between the characters. The social stigma or the so-called taboo was dealt with zeal. The script of the film was thorough in its depiction of wit, sarcasm and addressing the social dictate.
