It broke our hearts when Irrfan Khan revealed that he has been diagnosed with cancer. No one can forget the day he shared the news of his ailment. It’s still vivid in minds because of the frenzy that followed. Fans and followers were aghast, scared of the consequences. But Irrfan, with the will of a mountain, chose to re-affirm his belief in life and God and spent time reminiscing about poetry, whilst undergoing treatment in London. And we believe it is the same approach towards life that has made all the difference today.
So much so, that he is all set to return to the grind. The talented actor is back in bay and nothing makes us happier. Soon after his return, friend and director Tigmanshu Dhulia had even given us a health update and had said, “I did meet him after he returned to India. He is perfectly fine now. Irrfan told me that he will begin shooting for Hindi Medium franchise soon.” Earlier, producer Dinesh Vijan of Hindi Medium had said that they would get clarity about Hindi Medium 2 in a month or so and seems like things have finally fallen in the place.
In fact, reports of him starting shooting next month are abuzz. According to reports, the team could be heading to the US for the shooting of the film. An insider told Asian Age, “While Hindi Medium was shot extensively in India, the sequel will be shot in the US. The story will revolve around the daughter, to be played by Radhika Madan, who leaves travels to the United States for her higher education.”
However, according to our source, the film will pan out in UK and not US for the second slot of the hit social satire. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Irrfan was undergoing treatment there and would like to continue the following check-ups under the same. Or maybe it is so from the word go. In any case, we are thrilled that the star is getting back to doing what he does best. While the first instalment had Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, she will be replaced by a Bollywood beauty and hunt for the same is on.
The Hindi Medium sequel will be produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films with a plot that will flash-forward to 10 years to tell us the next part of the story of the Hindi loving Raj, the character played by Irrfan. Hindi Medium was a sleeper hit that released in 2017. And needless to say, we can’t wait to see him work his magic on screen again!
