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

Angrezi Medium will reportedly star Kareena Kapoor as the female lead. Going by the joy that Hindi Medium was, we're looking forward to this one too.
