Angrezi Medium: Irrfan Khan compares the film to his own life
Ahead of Angrezi Medium's release, Irrfan Khan spoke in detail about how the movie is similar to his life.
Irrfan Khan is back on the big screen after a long hiatus and is currently gearing up for his upcoming release ‘Angrezi Medium.’ Recently, in an interview, he spoke in detail about how the movie is similar to his situations in real life.
Talking to the Times Of India, Irrfan Khan quoted on how the plot is similar to his life, he said, “My child in Angrezi Medium loses her mother when she is very young. I wasn’t. Mine was a crisis of whether to pursue my dream or take care of my responsibility. For Champak (the character in Angrezi Medium) the dilemma is whether to let my daughter chase her dream or not, perhaps it would have been my father’s dilemma if he was alive. The crisis is of the father, not of the child, in this scenario. My mother was sure she wanted me not to chase my dream and stay with her, which, I recall, gave me lot of heartache. The culmination of Champak’s decision is perhaps what I would have wanted my mother to do. Let the child fly!”
Further, Irrfan also talked about how he forgot acting before he began shooting. He said, “I forgot how to act and then I wanted to forget and come clean. My battle has made me more sensitive in a good and a bad way. I was a man of few words, and now they’ve become fewer.”
Talking about the movie, ‘Angrezi Medium’ is a sequel to the 2017 entertainer ‘Hindi Medium’, which starred Irrfan and Saba Qamar in the lead roles.
‘Angrezi Medium’ also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Deepak Dobriyal and Radhika Madan in pivotal roles. It is a Maddock Films and has been directed by Homi Adajania. The movie will be releasing on March 13, 2020.
