“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,” Rajkummar shared.

Bhumi is extremely excited to share screen space with Rajkummar.
