Angrezi Medium Box Office: Irrfan Khan-Radhika Madan starrer is facing hardships at the ticket windows as cinegoers are preferably choosing to sit at home and theatres shutting down across the country due to coronavirus pandemic. The only hope from here on seems to be its re-release after the situation settles down.
After making 10.03 crores* in the opening weekend, Angrezi Medium added just 0.45 crores* on its first Monday, which pretty much seals the fate. The overall collection now stands at 10.48 crores* and it is all set close its run on a very poor note.
Directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium also features Deepak Dobriyal, Ranveer Shorey, Dimple Kapadia, Kiku Sharda and Kareena Kapoor Khan, in key roles. The film released on 6th March 2020.
Meanwhile, the makers of Irrfan Khans “Angrezi Medium” will be re-releasing the film in Kerala, Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir, regions where cinema halls will remain shut till March 31 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
On Thursday, it was announced that cinema halls and schools will be shut in several regions as an effort to prevent the highly-contagious virus from spreading. While the Akshay Kumar-starrer “Sooryavanshi” was immediately postponed, the makers of “Angrezi Medium” went ahead with the release on March 13 despite not being able to play the film in Delhi theatres.
” ‘Angrezi Medium‘ has been a journey I shall cherish all my life. The one thing I’ve learnt from its making is that whatever be the obstacle, if we pour our heart and soul into something, the universe will have our back. As the film now reaches India, we have already recieved unabashed love from Dubai and other international territories. Due to unforeseen circumstances it will however not release in Kerala, Delhi and Jammu & Kashmir. We hope for the same affection and support you’ve been giving us since day one. Our movie will reach these places when the time is right, but rest assured, just like Irrfan said, ‘wait for us’,” said the film’s producer Dinesh Vijan.
