Kareena Kapoor Khan is about to start shooting for the sequel of the super hit ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017) franchise, but the success of the first film was not the reason she agreed to be a part of the project. The main draw for the actress was to finally collaborate with Irrfan Khan, who she greatly admires.
In an interview with DNA, Kapoor revealed that she hadn’t even seen ‘Hindi Medium’ before signing up for ‘Angrezi Medium’, “No, I watched it after I signed the sequel. But I have seen ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ (2010) and other films of Irrfan earlier and I’m his huge fan. I’m excited to work with him. I have shared screen space with the other Khans — Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif — and I needed to tick the box with Irrfan. It would add something else. Even if it’s a small role, it’s a different world to collaborate with him.“
Kapoor will be seen playing a small and important character in the film, but the length of her role doesn’t matter to her as much as quality does, “Whether the role is big or small has never mattered. The script should be great, the movie should be content-driven and it should speak for itself in a way that suits my personality.“
Kapoor will begin shooting on 9th June in London. ‘Angrezi Medium’ will release on 25th April, 2020.
