Directed by Saket Chaudhary, Hindi Medium is about a young couple in Chandi Chowk, Delhi, who aspire to become a part of society’s upper cast. The film stars Irrfan in the lead role and also features Pakistani beauty Saba Qamar.
The film was in news when the ban on Pakistan artists was imposed. There were a lot of stories going around that the film might not release as it stars Saba.
Now, Amrita Singh is all set to join the cast of Hindi Medium. Amrita will be playing the role of a school principal. Talking about the character, Saket added, “The principal’s character signifies authority, a woman who builds the future of children, and Amrita Singh has the quality to intimidate. She’s dressed in sarees that were carefully chosen to emphasize that she has taste and that lend her an air of authority.”
The sequences were shot in Amrita’s alma mater, Modern School, in Delhi. Earlier, Singh impressed us with her act in Tiger Shroff’s A Flying Jatt. She played the role of a typical Punjabi mother.
Even in Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s 2 States, Amrita played the character of a Punjabi mother who isn’t happy with her son’s decision to marry a Tamilian girl.
