Irrfan Khan left everyone in a state of shock when he revealed that he had been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour, a rare form of cancer, earlier this year. The actor, who is currently undergoing treatment in London, dropped out of a few projects after his diagnosis. But now, it looks like Irrfan is recovering well and will get back to work soon.
The actor will be flying down to Mumbai in a day or two and we certainly cannot contain our excitement. Well, if the news indeed is true, it means that he is recuperating well and there has been an upward peak in his treatment.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, Irrfan is all set to start shooting for the sequel to Hindi Medium which is slated to go on floors in the first week of December. The actor reportedly gave his confirmation for the film when the makers recently flew down to London to meet him in order to narrate the script.
The second part of the film will be helmed by Homi Adajania and produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. Apparently, the sequel’s plot will move forward by 10 years and will see Irrfan reprising his role as Raj, the Delhi shopkeeper who was harrowed by school admission for his little daughter. His co-star in Hindi Medium was noted Pakistani actress Saba Qamar.
Meanwhile, apart from Hindi Medium 2, it is touted that the actor has also agreed to play the lead role of Udham Singh in Shoojit Sircar’s next directorial.
