In our country, English isn’t just a language, it’s a class. We are all so obsessed with it that we often judge people on the basis of the mistakes they commit while speaking or writing the language. Saket Chaudhary directorial Hindi Medium starring Irrfan Khan was a funny take on the English divide, which also passed on the important social message.
One of the most successful films of 2017 that also passed with flying colors at the box office, and helped Irrfan Khan win two back to back Best Actor Awards at Filmfare and Screen Awards for his stellar performance, is getting a sequel and we couldn’t be happier.
The sequel of the content-driven film that had crisp humour will reportedly star Irrfan Khan, and why not, the man was the star of the original. However, Pakistani actress Saba Qamar who played the female lead in the original won’t be a part of the sequel, it is said.
“The story fast-forwards by a decade, so five-year-old Pia will be in her teens now – around 15-16 years of age. The story will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with little reference to the original. Also, Director Saket Chaudhary won’t be a part of this sequel,” revealed an insider.
We loved the original, and we are excitedly waiting for the sequel. The sequel is said to go on floors in August this year. The release date and an official announcement of the sequel remain awaited.
