Backed by Junglee Pictures and also featuring Rajkummar Rao, the film is a sequel to the National Award-winning hit "Badhaai Ho!".

Taking to Instagram, Pednekar shared her photos with Rao and Kulkarni and said that movie wrapped up filming.

Take a look:
The upcoming film is written by Suman Adhikary and Akshat Ghildial, who had co-written "Badhaai Ho!".
"Badhaai Do" marks the first collaboration between Rao and Pednekar. Rao, 36, features in the film as a cop, while 31-year-old Pednekar will be seen in the role of a PT Teacher.
"Badhaai Ho!", the original movie, chronicled the story of a middle-age couple, played by Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao, facing an unexpected pregnancy.
The 2018 film, also featuring Ayushmann Khurrana, Surekha Sikri, and Sanya Malhotra, was directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma. It won two National Awards for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment and best-supporting actress for Sikri.
