Last week we reported that 2017’s sleeper hit Hindi Medium starring Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar is all set to have a sequel. The film will go on floors in August and in all probabilities will have Sara Ali Khan playing Irrfan Khan’s daughter Pia in the sequel. The film will be a flash forward by ten years so Sara will be seen playing Irrfan’s 15-year-old daughter in the film. Though Irrfan will reprise his role of Delhi based businessman Raj Batra whose aim was to fulfil his wife’s dream of getting their daughter admission in an English medium school, Saba who played his wife will not return to the sequel.
According to a source close to Mumbai Mirror, “The makers are really keen on Sara who is the daughter of Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh’s former business partner who collaborated with him on films like Being Cyrus, Love Aaj Kal, Agent Vinod, Cocktail, Go Goa Gone and Happy Ending. Her mother, Amrita Singh, has played the principal of the English medium Delhi Grammar School in the original.”
When the tabloid got in touch with Dinesh Vijan, he said, “I have just finished the script and I am going to get into the casting now.” The film will be produced by Vijan and T-series head honcho Bhushan Kumar and will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with reference to the first film.
