Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, who recently returned to India after completion of his one-year long treatment in the UK, is now raring to get back to work.
A newspaper report suggests that Irrfan, who is presently in Rajasthan for a personal commitment, is all set to kick-start the shooting for Homi Adjania’s Hindi Medium 2 known as Angrezi Medium.
Latest news with Pataakha actor Radhika Madan joining the cast as his daughter.
“Irrfan and Radhika started prep a while ago and are looking forward to kicking off the first schedule in Rajasthan.
It’s an important portion after which they will take off for the international schedule,” a source close to the development told a leading daily.
Further talking about the film’s schedule, the source revealed:
“It was initially planned to be set in the US but will now take place in London for which the team recently conducted a recce.”
The report further claimed that Kareena Kapoor Khan has been roped in to play the leading lady.
The actress is likely to join the cast in London later in May after wrapping up Dharma Productions’ Good News.
She’ll wrap up the film before she begins filing Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht.
Recently, another newspaper article highlighted that Kareena will be seen as a cop in Angrezi Medium.
“While the film kicks off in April, Kareena will join the unit only by May-end during the London schedule. She will be seen as a cop in the satire,” a source told the daily.
According to the report, Kareena loved the story and is rather excited to be a part of the satire.
This is due to the fact that this is the first time when she has been approached to essay the role of a police officer in her film career spanning 19 years.
Now, this brings us to the question of whether Kareena has been roped in for a supporting role or whether she’ll actually play Irrfan’s love interest in the film.
An official confirmation regarding this development is yet to be received from the producers’ end.
Meanwhile, Angrezi Medium is Irrfan’s first project after he was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumor in March 2018.
In fact, shooting kicked off today in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
He was last seen in Karwaan.
Saket Chaudhary’s 2017 hit Hindi Medium, starred Irrfan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in pivotal roles.
