Ever since Irrfan has returned to India after undergoing cancer treatment in London, all his die-hard fans have been waiting for the actor to announce his next film and the day Irrfan started shooting for a sequel to Hindi Medium, their happiness knew no bounds. As we speak, the first schedule of Angrezi Medium has wrapped up in Udaipur and soon, the cast of the film will kick-start the shooting of the film in London. While Radhika Madan plays Irrfan’s daughter in the film, a young college girl named Poorvi Jain, who is making her debut with the film, plays the role of Irrfan’s wife in Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium and what is interesting is that Poorvi didn’t know that Kareena Kapoor Khan also features in the film.
“I always wanted to be an actor and had been giving auditions recently. However, I had no clue about the film or my role when I gave my audition for Angrezi Medium. In fact, even when I got through and bagged the role, I did not know I was playing Irrfan sir’s wife in the film. It was only when I landed on sets for my first shot that I realised I am playing his (Irrfan’s) wife,” Poorvi informed adding that she had to google to check that Bebo also features in the film. “I have no clue. It was only when I Googled my film to check who all are there, that I found Kareena stars in the movie. And, when Radhika (Madan) posted about it on her Instagram, I was confirmed that Kareena is there,” informs an excited Poorvi.
Before kick-starting the shooting of Angrezi Medium, Irrfan penned a heartwarming note on social media to thank his fans for their unconditional love and in the film, Irrfan plays the role of a shop owner named Champakji. Directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium is slated to hit theatres April 25, 2020. Soon, the makers will start the second schedule of the film in London and reportedly, Kareena who plays the role of a cop in the film, will join the cast in London.
