Actor Rajkummar Rao is gaining muscle to play a police officer in Badhaai Do and went on Instagram to show him a look at his new look. He posted a shirtless image of himself in the middle of a training session and revealed that he will undergo a major physical transformation for the role.
“#WorkInProgress #NEWtan To get a new look for a new character, you have to get a new body and a new mindset. #BadhaiDo #BeMehnati “, he wrote in his caption.
Mukesh Chhabra, casting director, commented: “Kya baat hai mere tiger (Wow, my tiger)”. Fans also couldn’t help but dwell on Rajkummar’s look. “Wooowww my beautiful hero,” one wrote. “Lord Katai Tabahi (killer),” said another. “You are a brother changer,” wrote a third.
Badhaai Do, who also plays Bhumi Pednekar as a PT teacher, is an independent sequel to the 2018 Badhaai Ho hit. The original film was about a middle-aged woman with older children who becomes pregnant and how her family and society react to the news. She starred in Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra.

Director Harshavardhan Kulkarni had earlier told the Mumbai Mirror that Badhaai Do would “hit a big social problem”. “All I can say is that Badhaai Do is as much fun as Badhaai Ho, only the world we create is becoming more diverse. He moves from a small town to a bigger one and then on to something else. There is a lot of color and drama, “he said.
Rajkummar was last seen in Chhalaang by Hansal Mehta along with Nushrratt Bharuccha and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. The film appeared on Amazon Prime Video last month.
Rajkummar’s future projects include the Netflix movie The White Tiger with Priyanka Chopra, Roohi Afzana with Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma and Dinesh Vijan’s comedy with Kriti Sanon.
