After tickling our funnybones with his super amazing talent in Hindi Medium, Irrfan Khan is all set to impress us again in its sequel now.
Now, we have just learned that the sequel to Hindi Medium has been confirmed and would go on floors in August this year.
Irrfan Khan will be essaying the role of a Delhi based businessman Raj Batra who aspires to give his daughter the best education. According to a source, “The story flash-forwards by a decade so five-year-old Pia will be in her teens now, around 15-16 years. The story will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with little reference to the original.”
Also, director Saket Chaudhary won’t be a part of this sequel.
Recently, Saba Qamar told a Pakistani daily that despite the restriction on Pakistani artists in Bollywood, she hoped to be the part of the sequel. She said, “After the massive success of Hindi Medium, the producers are all set for a sequel. I hope Irrfan and I get to work in the second instalment of the blockbuster.”
According to Ahmedabad Mirror, Saba won’t be part of the cast and neither will Dishita Sehgal who played her daughter in the film.
Irrfan Khan recently won two back to back Best Actor Awards at Filmfare and Screen Awards for his performance in Hindi Medium this year. Dinesh Vijan who produced the film with Bhushan Kumar and recently inked a multiple-project film deal with him will once again produce the film with the T-Series.
