Pankaj Tripathi is set to collaborate with National Film Award-winning Irrfan Khan for the first time in his career. The actor has been signed on for a cameo in Khan’s next film, titled Angrezi Medium.
Talking about his role in the film, Tripathi said, “It’s a cameo appearance. It’s my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinu (producer Dinesh Vijan) that made me say yes to it. I always wanted to work with Irrfan and when Dinu offered me this role, I immediately agreed even if it’s just a cameo role.”
Dinesh Vijan and Pankaj Tripathi have previously collaborated on two blockbuster films, namely Stree (2018) and Luka Chuppi (2019).
Angrezi Medium, which is currently being shot in Udaipur, is the sequel to Irrfan Khan’s 2017 film, Hindi Medium. It’s the first film Khan is working on after he was treated for neuroendocrine tumour last year.
Being directed by Homi Adajania, the satirical drama also features Deepak Dobriyal and Radhika Madan in important roles. If reports are to be believed, Kareena Kapoor Khan has also joined the star cast of the film to play a pivotal part in it.
