Earlier, in an interview with The New Indian Express, Radhika Madan spoke about her experience of working with Irrfan Khan. She said, "We were really conscious and used to work according to his health. We'd always prioritise his scenes and wrap up early. We took it one day at a time, since nobody knew if we would finish this film. But his love and his passion for his art drove him and us. He didn't let our spirits droop for a moment. It was the coolest set ever. Everybody used to laugh and have fun."
Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with cancer in 2018, after which he underwent treatment in London. Irrfan Khan returned to India briefly and filmed Angrezi Medium, which released in March. Angrezi Medium remains Irrfan Khan's last film.
