After several reports speculating that Irrfan Khan will begin shooting for ‘Hindi Medium 2’ soon, there is finally some confirmation of the actor returning to work. Read on.
According to a statement made by film director Tigmanshu Dhulia, Irrfan, who is battling cancer, is better now.
I did meet him after he returned to India. He is perfectly fine now. Irrfan told me that he will begin shooting for ‘Hindi Medium’ franchise soon.
We will do a film soon. Actually, we were in the process of writing one for him. Probably, if everything goes well, we shall be making the film soon.
Tigmanshu Dhulia and Irrfan Khan have worked together in projects like Paan Singh Tomar and Saheb, Biwi & Gangster Returns. This will, thus, mark the third collaboration of the actor-director duo, in case the project gets confirmed.
Irrfan had taken a sabbatical from films for about a year, after he was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor – a rare form of cancer. The actor was getting treated for the said condition in London, and returned to India around the end of 2018.
