Irrfan Khan recently won two back to back Best Actor Awards at Filmfare and Screen Awards for his performance in ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017) this year. BizAsiaLive.com has learned that the sequel is now confirmed and is expected to go on the floors in August with Khan essaying the role of a Delhi based businessman Raj Batra who aspires to give his daughter the best education.
According to a source, “The story flash-forwards by a decade so five-year-old Pia will be in her teens now, around 15-16 years. The story will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with little reference to the original.”
Director Saket Chaudhary won’t be a part of this sequel, it is thought. Dinesh Vijan who produced the film with Bhushan Kumar and recently inked a multiple-project film deal with him will once again produce the film with the T-Series.
