Filmmaker Dinesh Vijan reveals to a media outlet that “there are plans for a Chinese Medium, but it would all depend on my friend Irrfan Khan.”
Irrfan Khan’s 2017-release Hindi Medium was an instant hit, the movie titled Angrezi Medium, also starring Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in pivotal roles along with Deepak Dobriyal and Dimple Kapadia, is slated for release on March 13, 2020.
Hindi Medium released in China and was a hit. Angrezi Medium, too, will find its way there in a few months. I was in the country four weeks after the first film opened on April 4, 2018, dining at a private room in one of the restaurants when one of the waitresses, having heard that the producer of Hindi Medium was there, came running to tell me she’d seen the film with her young daughter and it had really connected with her. That set me thinking.
Dinesh Vijan says, “Now, with Angrezi Medium, we have taken the story out of our country, and because the daughter is older and wants to study in the UK, the crisis is bigger for Irrfan’s character, who, this time, is a single parent. Since the Chinese are all around the globe and are sending their kids abroad for higher studies while struggling with the language barrier, I think the world now deserves a Chinese Medium.”
