Putting all speculations to rest, Angrezi Medium producer Dinesh Vijan has confirmed the lead actress to be Kareena Kapoor Khan and fans can’t wait to see the fresh pairing with Irrfan Khan. The movie also stars Radhika Madan, reportedly as Irrfan’s daughter and Deepak Dobriyal as his brother.
Calling Angrezi Medium “a very special film” and roping in Kareena as “a great addition to our franchise,” Dinesh told IANS in a statement, “I’m excited that she’s going to be a part of it. We wanted to introduce this character who would be taken forward in the franchises to come, and she’s perfect for it. Here, she plays a cop – a role she’s actually never done before. We will be shooting in London this June, and it will be great to be back on set with her.”
The film is currently being shot in Rajasthan and after the cast and crew wrap up their Rajasthan schedule, the team will head to London where Kareena will join them. The movie will revolve around Irrfan’s character Champak, a sweetshop owner in Udaipur, whose daughter has aspirations of studying in the West.
Another versatile actor Pankaj Tripathi will also be seen in the film in a cameo role. On his role, Pankaj earlier said in a statement, “It’s a cameo appearance. It’s my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinu (Dinesh) that made me say yes to it. I always wanted to work with Irrfan and when Dinu offered me this role, I immediately agreed even if it’s just a cameo role.”
Produced by Dinesh Vijan and directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium is a sequel to the widely appreciated 2017 entertainer Hindi Medium.
