There ain’t nobody who dislikes Irfan because such is his body of work and acting prowess that it takes minutes to join the Irfan fan club. Way back in 2018, when Irfan announced that he is undergoing Cancer treatment in London, all his million fans were shaken by this piece of news so much so that fans started to speculate if this Hindi Medium actor will ever return to the screens. But guess, all the prayers were answered because after recuperating, Irfan returned to films with Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium.
While the shooting of Angrezi Medium kick-started in Udaipur, the cast and crew of the film later shot in Mumbai and finally, wrapped up the shooting in London. While Irrfan and his on-screen daughter, Radhika Madan shot in Udaipur, Kareena Kapoor Khan joined the team in London. Now, in an interview, producer of the film, Dinesh Vijan opened up on his willingness to cast Irrfan in the film and therefore, while Irrfan was undergoing treatment in London, Dinesh patiently waited for him to recover so that he can get on board for Angrezi Medium. In an interview, Dinesh reveals as to how they shot for Angrezi Medium and Irrfan was at his best while shooting for the film. “We did not plan any particular pattern of shooting, especially for Irfan. I must confess that Irfan was as fit as a fiddle on the shoot. We had planned a normal shooting schedule, which was not planned according to his health. Though, we found him at his best in spite of Rajasthan’s scorching heat,” said Dinesh.
Furthermore, Dinesh added that the audiences will get to see a fresher, healthier, and better version of Irfan in the film. Well, we are sure that fans can’t wait for Angrezi Medium to hit the screens so that they can watch Irrfan on the 70 mm screen after a long time. In the film, Irrfan plays the role of a shopkeeper called Champakji. As for Bebo, she will be seen playing the role of a cop named Naina and in an interview, Kareena had expressed a sense of joy over sharing screen space with Irrfan for the first time.
