Actor Rajkummar Rao is gaining muscle to become a police officer in Badhaai Do and he went to Instagram to catch a glimpse of his new look. He posted a shirtless picture 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 need to get a new body and a new mindset. #BadhaiDo #BeMehnati,” he wrote in his caption.
Mukesh Chhabra, a casting directed filmmaker, commented, “Kya baat hai mere tiger (Wow, my tiger).” Fans were also unable to stop emerging Rajkummar’s new look. “Wooowww my handsome hero,” it was written. “Katai tabahi (murderer) body lord,” another commented. “You’re a gambler, brother,” wrote a third.
Badhaai Do, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar as a PT teacher, is a stand-alone sequel to the hit Badhaai Ho in 2018. The original film was about a middle-aged woman with adult children who becomes pregnant, and how her family and society react to the news. It starred Ayushmann Khurrana, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra.

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