It has been just a little over 24 hours since the trailer of 'Badhai Ho' got released on the internet. But the film has been receiving tremendous response owing to its quirky theme. 

Starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Sanya Malhotra and Gajraj Rao, the film has a couple getting pregnant in their late 40s. 

Neena Gupta who plays Ayushman Khurrana's pregnant mother in the film says she agreed to do the film without even reading the script as she felt the subject was real and entertaining.
"I did not even read the script of the film because the subject was so interesting. Female actors of our age don`t get a chance to play such interesting characters. This phase of our life is not addressed only in our Hindi cinema. 

"But I think the change is happening because of the youngsters who are writing such scripts," Neena told a news agency. The story of the film revolves around an elderly couple who are expecting a child in their late 40s.

"There is nervousness that one feels out of joy and people`s high expectations. I am just feeling that now...when people say all the good words about the film," said Neena about receiving such positive feedback on the film's trailer.

'Badhaai Ho' is releasing on October 12.
