The makers of Irrfan Khan starrer Angrezi Medium have officially announced that Kareena Kapoor Khan is a part of the satirical drama and will portray the character of a cop in the film. Producer of the film Dinesh Vijan confirmed the news and said in a statement, “Kareena is a great addition to our franchise. Angrezi Medium is a very special film, and I am excited that she is going to be a part of it. We wanted to introduce this character who would be taken forward in the franchise, and she is perfect for it. Here she plays a cop, a role she is actually never done before. We will be shooting in London this June, and it will be great to be back on set with her.”
Also featuring Radhika Madan in a pivotal role, Angrezi Medium will narrate the story of Irrfan Khan and Deepak Dobriyal, who play brothers and 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. The film is the sequel to Hindi medium, which was one of the top grossers of 2017 and the third most profitable film of the year. With the addition of Kareena, we must say Angrezi Medium has become of the most awaited films of 2019.
Earlier, speaking Angrezi Medium, producer Dinesh Vijan had described it as a surreal feeling to have Irrfan Khan 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,'' Dinesh added. When asked whether Irrfan was emotional too, he said, ''No Irrfan was his usual self. Wry humour, crackling one-liners and back on his own turf. Deepak and his improvisations brought the house down. It was like the first day of Hindi Medium.''
The film is directed by Homi Adajania, who previously helmed films like Cocktail and Finding Fanny. Anyway, are you excited for Angrezi Medium? Tweet to us @bollywood_life
