Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed in her latest interaction with the media that her role in Angrezi Medium is small but she accepted the film because she could never leave an opportunity to work with Irrfan Khan. The actor is playing the role of a cop in the film which is a sequel to Hindi Medium that released in the year 2017. Actors Radhika Madan and Deepak Dobriyal also feature in the film apart from Kareena and Irrfan.
While she refused to give away the details of her character, Kareena maintained that she found herself lucky when she was approached by the producer of the film for a role in Angrezi Medium. The actor said that when one works with a talent like Irrfan, there’s so much that an artiste gets to learn. She further said that working with Irrfan was something she had been wanting to happen since very long and when it happened, she felt like ticking that wish off her list. Kareena was quoted by news agency PTI saying, “It is a small part and I did not want to miss the opportunity to be working with Irrfan Khan. That box needed to be ticked in my career that I had the pleasure of working with him whether it is two scenes or three or more.”
She went on to describe that she and Irrfan are both completely different actors and their choice of films have also been different. However, that can’t stop her from believing in the kind of cinema that Irrfan believes in. She said she was told by director Homi Adajania that she would be having less screen space in the film but it’s a great opportunity to work with Irrfan and therefore, she thought there was no point saying no to the film.
Meanwhile, Angrezi Medium is set in Udaipur and has Irfaan playing the role of a sweet-shop owner. His character inherits a 100-year-old shop in the family. His daughter’s wish of studying abroad takes him to London where all the confusion and struggle of taking admission to a prestigious college begin.
