RJ Balaji鈥檚 next film, the comedy caper and family drama, Veetla Visesham is all set to release in theatres on June 17. The film is a remake of the Hindi film Badhaai Ho that featured Ayushmann Khuranna and Sanya Malhotra in the lead and was directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma. Balaji has co-written and co-directed the film with NJ Saravanan, with whom he had earlier collaborated for Mookuthi Amman, which had Nayanthara in the lead.

The actor has kickstarted the promotions of the film in Mumbai where the trailer was launched recently during an IPL Playoff match between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai. Urvashi as a middle-aged pregnant woman aptly fits the role, and giving him company is Sathyaraj, also known for his sense of humour.

The trailer has already received 5 million views. Sharing the same on his social media page, Balaji wrote, "5 million real time views for trailer !!!馃敟馃敟馃敟 Thank you for giving us this happy feeling !!!馃挅馃挅馃挅#VeetlaVisheshamFromJune17th (sic)"

During the promotions of the film, Balaji revealed that he had made a few changes to suit the taste of the Tamil audience. He said that the Tamil version has come out well. He added that he didn't want to compare his work with the original and that he was pretty confident about his outing. 

The plot revolves around a middle-aged couple, who get pregnant, much to the chagrin of their grown-up sons. The late actor KPAC Lalitha will be seen in the role portrayed by Surekha Sikri. RJ Balaji and Aparna Balamurali will play the characters portrayed by Ayushmann Khurana and Sanya Malhotra in the original. 

Badhaai Ho bagged two National Awards and the film also had a spiritual successor in Badhaai Do, which released earlier this year starring Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar.
