Take a look:
Angrezi Medium had released on March 13, 2020 as the coronavirus outbreak began making its presence felt in India. The film registered an opening of Rs 4.03 crore. It wrapped up at just Rs 9.36 crore when movie theatres pulled down their shutters ahead of a countrywide lockdown.
Angrezi Medium is the sequel to the 2017 film Hindi Medium that featured Irrfan with Pakistani actor Saba Qamar. While the first film commented on the expensive educational system in the country, the sequel shows the journey of a single father who tries his best to get his teenage daughter admission at one of London’s big universities.
Several production houses stopped the shooting of their films and those who are still continuing with the work, are following strict WHO guidelines on the sets
