Irrfan Khan starrer 2017 film ‘Hindi Medium’ was directed by Saket Chaudhary.
Now, Filmmaker Homi Adajania will be directing the sequel to Hindi Medium with actor Irrfan Khan playing the lead.
The filmmaker says 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 on Monday.
Adajania said in a statement, “I ambled into Vijan’s room and he was sitting down to a narration. I had enjoyed the first one of ‘Hindi Medium’ and the way these writers have taken the narrative forward is very clever.”
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, ‘Hindi Medium’ revolves around a couple who wants to give their daughter the best education, so that she becomes accepted by the elite in society.
It also features Pakistani actor 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
