Hindi Medium 2:
Recently Irrfan Khan was spotted at Mumbai airport and also shared about his return to Bollywood post his year-long treatment in the UK. He took to Twitter to share the news and wrote a heartfelt message for everyone supporting him in his bad time and also went on to say how we often miss out on the importance of being loved. Being grateful, this is what he posted:
“Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support. It soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart,”
It got Bollywood excited, and they welcomed him back warmly. Now soon after his return, he is raring to work and start his upcoming project Hindi Medium 2. As per a report, he is currently in Rajasthan for some personal commitment, but he will begin shooting for the film real soon along with Radhika Madan.
Apparently, the Patakha actor has been cast along with Irrfan and Kareena to play Irrfan’s daughter in the Homi Adjania directorial. A source close to the team told media,
“Irrfan and Radhika started prep a while ago and are looking forward to kick off the first schedule in Rajasthan. It’s an important portion after which they will take off for the international schedule,”
Adding further about the movie’s schedule, the source said,
“It was initially planned to be set in the US but will now take place in London for which the team recently conducted a recce.”
It was earlier reported that Kareena Kapoor was to play the lead role in the movie and she will join the cast by May-end, after wrapping up her prior commitments, in London. She is busy shooting for Good News starring Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, and Diljit Dosanjh. She’ll wrap up the film before she begins work on Karan Johar’s ensemble Takht.
“While the film kicks off in April, Kareena will join the unit only by May-end during the London schedule. She will be seen as a cop in the satire,” further added the source.
Kareena is known to be pretty excited for this satirical project as this is the first time in the 19 years of her healthy career that someone has approached her to play a police officer. What is still to ponder is that whether Irrfan and Kareena will be playing husband and wife in the film or not, for if it so, then would we see Kareena essaying the role of Radhika’s mother as well. Nothing so far has been officially confirmed, but it all sounds interesting.
About the title of the movie, there could be a chance that the makers would not go with Hindi Medium 2 and since the new subject focuses on the issue of current English Medium schools as well, they might change the name of the movie to English Medium.
