Irrfan Khan is back in action with yet another comic caper, Angrezi Medium and we can't keep calm. The film is a sequel to 2017 sleeper hit Hindi Medium. It marks Irrfan's comeback in films, after recovering from neuroendocrine tumor. Taking to his Twitter handle, the actor introduced his character, Champakji, in his usual wry humour. He wrote, 'GMB serving since 1900s It’s going to be fun to tell another story
#AngreziMedium. Coming soon, with Mr Champakji... Aa Raha Hu phir entertain Karne Sabko #ItsTimeToKnowChampakJi #AngreziMedium.' The actor is clearly very happy to be back on his home turf. This makes the wait all the more exciting. As soon as Irrfan Khan shared this good news, fans from all over the world cheered him with a warm welcome. Wishes poured in for the actor as fans expressed joy to see him back in business. Some tagged him as fighter, while others were excited to see him paired with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Without further ado, let's have a look at some of the tweets...
Hindu Medium was a huge hit among the masses, courtesy Irrfan and Saba Qamar's comedy timing. With Kareena Kapoor on board this time, it will be interesting to see their chemistry on-screen. The shooting commenced on 5th April and was an emotional moment for everyone on set. The producer of the film, Dinesh Vijan described it as a surreal feeling to have the actor back on the sets. Dinesh revealed that everyone turned emotional when the actor gave his first shot. ''For me, it was one of those life-defining moments working with him again after Hindi Medium. Having him and Homi (Adajania) 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 the biggest sweet shop also adds to the rivalry within the family.
Meanwhile, before he was diagnosed with the fatal illness, Irrfan appeared in BlackMail opposite Kirti Kulhari, Arunoday Singh and Divya Dutta and Karwaan with Dulqer Salman and Mithila Palkar. He also featured in an American drama film Puzzle which also starred Kelly Macdonald, David Denman, Bubba Weiler, Austin Abrams and Liv Hewson.
