Hotstar UK has premiered Irrfan Khan’s swansong, ‘Angrezi Medium’ on its platform, ahead of the television broadcast.
This is the first time that Hotstar has streamed a film before broadcast. Up until now, recent movies like ‘Chhapaak’ and ‘Panga’ have first aired on television. However, they were immediately uploaded on Hotstar after their TV screening.
The film directed by Homi Adajania, is about a hardworking Rajasthani businessman, who does everything in his power to make his daughter’s dreams come true when she decides to further her studies in London. It also stars Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor.
Incidentally, ‘Angrezi Medium’ will premiere on Star Gold in India this weekend. A UK television date is yet to be confirmed.
