Saket Chaudhary directed ‘Hindi Medium’ which starred Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar.
Now the second part of the movie will be directing by Homi Adajania with actor Irrfan Khan playing the lead.
The filmmaker said the film’s story is very “amusing yet emotional”. The news of Adajania getting on board to direct the quirky franchise comedy for Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock films banner was announced earlier.
Adajania said in a statement, “I ambled into Vijan room and he was sitting down to a narration. I had enjoyed the first one ‘Hindi Medium’ and the way these writers have taken the narrative forward is very clever.”
“So yeah, I pretty much gate-crashed the narration and it was so engaging and hilarious that I told him I’d be happy to direct it if he had no director attached to the project. It’s been a while since I’ve found any material so amusing yet emotional,” he added.
Vijan and Adajania have worked on films ‘Being Cyrus’ and ‘Cocktail’.
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, ‘Hindi Medium’ revolves around a couple who wants to give their daughter the best education.
Therefore, the elite in society accept that she.
It also features Pakistani actress Saba Qamar.
While Irrfan has come on board for the sequel, there is no word on Qamar getting back for the second part.
‘Hindi Medium 2’ story will be flash-forward by a decade and will narrate the story of Irrfan’s character Raj.–CINEWS
