After Irrfan Khan’s, public statement a few months back which revealed that the actor is battling with cancer, his fans were left shattered. But now, his fans can heave a sigh of relief because we hear that Irrfan Khan has agreed to do the sequel to Hindi Medium.
After Irrfan’s announcement in March that he will be undergoing treatment for a Neuroendocrine tumour in London, he dropped out of two projects the untitled Vishal Bhardwaj film with Deepika Padukone and political satire series titled Gormint.
According to reports, the makers of Hindi Medium flew down to London to meet Irrfan and the narration of the script was held there. Post the meeting, Irrfan gave his nod to star in the sequel to Hindi Medium.
Hindi Medium sequel will be produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. If reports are to be believed, the plot will forward ten years and narrate the next part of the story of the Hindi loving Raj, the character played by Irrfan.
Last, we saw Irrfan Khan in Akarsh Khurana’s Karwaan starring Dulquer Salman and Mithila Palkar.
