Starring Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Sanya Malhotra, Badhaai Ho became the family entertainer grossing over Rs 200 crore at the domestic box office. Now, producer Boney Kapoor is all set to take Junglee Pictures' production down South and remake it in four languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.

Confirming the news Boney told MM, “Yes, I have acquired the rights to all the South languages. It’s a film that resonates with both the masses and classes so I was keen on remaking it. I am yet to decide whether the Tamil or the Telugu version go on the floors first as it’s work in progress.”

Boney Kapoor is also confident that the South remakes will do as well as the Hindi comedy-drama directed by Amit Sharma. He said, "The Hindi version has done extremely well in the heartland, in fact, across the country, and I am confident the reception down South will be as overwhelming. As per the report, Boney is also producing Amit Sharma's next film starring Ajay Devgn and is a biopic on Indian football coach Syed Abdul Rahim.
