Starring Irrfan Khan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in lead roles, Hindi Medium was one of the most successful films of 2017. The audience loved the concept of the movie as much as they loved the chemistry between the lead pair.

After the huge success of Hindi Medium, Irrfan Khan toplined its sequel Angrezi Medium (2020) which, unfortunately, turned out to be his last outing, as the National Award-winning actor breathed his last on 29th April after a two-year long battle with cancer.

Lahore-based Saba Qamar tells a publication that she is devastated by the passing away of her Hindi Medium co-star. “2020 continues to take the beauty of this world away from us. I have learned a lot from Irrfan. Working with him was nothing less than a fan moment for me throughout. As an actor, I believe that acting is actually behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances. And I actually saw that in him,” says the actress.

She goes on to add, “There was never a dull moment when he was around. We used to crack jokes with each other all the time. He always used to make me learn new things and give pro tips on life.”

Recounting one funny moment from the sets of Hindi Medium, Qamar says, “When I entered the room where he was sitting, he started singing the song Badan pe sitaraey… for me. I’ll always cherish the entire time I have spent with him.”

Before signing off, Saba Qamar mentions that Irrfan Khan was very philosophical.
