Directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium is a spin-off of Irrfan Khan's 2017 film Hindi Medium and also stars Kareena Kapoor and Radhika Madaan in key roles. The cast of the film also includes actors such as Dimple Kapadia, Ranvir Shorey, Pankaj Tripathi and Zakir Hussain.
Kareena Kapoor, who plays the role of a cop named Naina in Angrezi Medium, described Irrfan Khan as the "biggest Khan" in an interview with IANS: "I have worked with all the Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif. But for me, it is an honour and privilege to work with Irrfan Khan... He is the pioneer, one of the finest actors among all the Khans if I may say, and he is the biggest Khan for me."
Director Homi Adajania wrapped Angrezi Medium with a thank you-note to Irrfan Khan in a heart-felt post: "Irrfan Khan, you are incredible ... and you're a decent actor as well. I love you more than I know how to say. Thank you to my crew and cast for not letting the odds stack up against us. I truly believe that our collective positivity and celebration of life allowed us this."
I wanted to do this film knowing it would be against the odds. I wanted to do it for all the wrong reasons to make a film but they just seemed so right and still do. It's been an emotional roller coaster more than anything else and I know how hard it's been for everyone. Irrfan Khan, you are incredible ... and you're a decent actor as well . I love you more than I know how to say. Thank you to my crew and cast for not letting the odds stack up against us. I truly believe that our collective positivity and celebration of life allowed us this. Regardless of this film's fate, it's shown me a lighter way of being and I'll always cherish this. #itsawrap #angrezimedium #adioslondon @irrfan #iflifegivesyoulemonsgrabsometequila @harjeetsphotography @maddockfilms #dineshvijan
