Fans have been rejoicing ever since they heard that Irrfan Khan had started shooting for the sequel to his 2017 film, Hindi Medium, after battling neuroendocrine tumour. The movie, which went on the shooting floor on 5th April, stars Pataakha (2018) fame Radhika Madan as Khan’s daughter.
The original film had popular Pakistani actress Saba Qamar playing Khan’s love interest in it. But since Bollywood has imposed a blanket ban on Pakistani artists working in India, her presence in Angrezi Medium was out of question and hence, the makers had been on look-out for the female lead opposite Irrfan Khan for a long time.
Speculations have been rife of late that super gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan was in talks with the makes for the female lead role. Now, Radhika Madan, who plays the parallel female lead of the movie, has confirmed that Bebo has indeed come onboard as the female lead of Angrezi Medium.
The newbie confirmed the news on social media. She shared a picture of clapboard from the sets of the flick and tagged Irrfan Khan and Homi Adajania, along with has-tagging Kareena Kapoor Khan and producer Dinesh Vijan’s names. “As excited as the man behind! So, so, so grateful for this new journey. @irrfan @homster @maddockfilms #kareenakapoorkhan #dineshvijan,” she captioned the image.
Besides Irrfan Khan, Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Angrezi Medium also stars talented actor Deepak Dobriyal. The movie is being helmed by Cocktail (2012) fame Homi Adajania.
