Kareena Kapoor is set to star in Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium 2 reports suggest. Maddock Films’ head honcho, Dinesh Vijan, had said that Irrfan Khan would appear in Hindi Medium’s sequel, Hindi Medium 2. The original film had Irrfan Khan as the lead with Pakistani actress Saba Qamar. Owing to the conflict between Pakistan and India over Uri and Pulwama, Maddock Films had even stopped their films Luka Chuppi and upcoming film Arjun Patiala to release in Pakistan.
Speaking to Indian Express, Dinesh Vijan had spoken up about the casting of the film saying that Irrfan is back and ready to star in the sequel. They are currently putting finishing touches in the script whereas any confirmation has yet to be announced formally. Irrfan is, however, back in the city, said Vijan.
Reports have been making rounds that Kareena Kapoor Khan would appear opposite Irrfan as a ‘tough cop’ and the film would be shot in the United States. A report in Asian Age made this claim, stating that the story revolves around the daughter, played by Radhika Madan. The character of the daughter sees a story arc where she’s gone to the United States for higher education and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be Irrfan Khan’s love interest.
Other than Hindi Medium 2’s sequel Maddock Films will be producing Imtiaz Ali’s next with Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan as well as Rooh Afza, starring Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor. Their recent film Luka Chuppi, also starring Kartik Aaryan, did well at the box office and earned around 90 crores.
