2017’s sleeper hit Hindi Medium’s sequel has just kick started with the return of Irfan Khan. The second instalment is titled Angrezi Medium and will mark Khan’s comeback on the big screen, post the brief break that he took as he was undergoing medical treatment. The actor was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and was receiving treated in London. He returned to Mumbai last month. Coming back to the movie, fans have been quite excited for this one not only because of Irrfan Khan’s return but also because he will be seen sharing screen space with Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.

Coming soon, with Mr Champakji…Aa Raha Hu phir entertain Karne Sabko #ItsTimeToKnowChampakJi #AngreziMedium? ??” Needless to say, fans thronged to welcome the star and poured in wishes as he got back to the grind.

The general euphoria was hard to miss and something tells us it is only going to grow. How? Well, director Homi Adjania has taken to Instagram to share a BTS picture and our excitement knows no bounds. The filmmaker posted a picture of Radhika Madan, Ranvir Shorey and himself and captioned it as ‘The subjectivity of humour’. While it left us crackling, we sure are missing Irrfan Khan from the frame. Check it out here!
Producer Dinesh Vijan, earlier in an interview, had gotten emotional speaking about the first shot of Irrfan on the sets. He had said, “Having him (Irrfan) back on the set was a surreal feeling, he’s undoubtedly one of the best actors in the country. When he gave the first shot, everyone around got emotional. For me, it was one of those life-defining moments working with him again after Hindi Medium. Having him and Homi together was something all three of us have always wanted.”
Talking about Angrezi Medium, Irrfan and Deepak Dobriyal will play brothers in the film who have inherited a 100-year-old sweet business and are also rivals. A distant cousin, played by Manu Rishi, who owns a biggest sweet shop also adds to the rivalry within the family. Stay tuned to BL for more updates and scoops!
