Angrezi Medium, without a doubt, is one of the most awaited Bollywood films. One major reason for that is Kareena Kapoor Khan and Irrfan Khan sharing screen space for the first time. Kareena, too, is excited for this one and believes that the film will be a great learning experience for her. In a recent interview with PTI, Bebo spoke about working with Irrfan and how that box needed to be ticked.
It is a small part and I did not want to miss the opportunity to be working with Irrfan Khan. That box needed to be ticked in my career that I had the pleasure of working with him whether it is two scenes or three or more. As an artiste one gets to learn so much when you are part of a good film.
Kareena also said that she grabbed this opportunity as she didn’t know when another one would come her way. “We are dramatically different actors. We don’t do the same kind of movies,” she added. The actress will be essaying the role of a cop in the film and is pretty excited about it.
Angrezi Medium will mark Irrfan’s comeback to the movies. The actor was in London for his neuroendocrine tumour treatment and returned to Mumbai in April. He had shared a heartfelt note thanking everyone for the love and support. The film is a part of the Hindi Medium franchise and not a sequel to the 2017 release. “It is going to be in the same space- around the English language- but it is not a continuation. Angrezi Medium is going to be a completely different script, characters and story, but with the same core,” our source had revealed.
Also starring Radhika Madan, the Homi Adajania directorial will be releasing in 2020.
