Photo taken by @prabhatshetty one Pune evening at the model colony lake.. where we as children used to go during Ganapati to request people not to do visarjan in the lake; save the life underwater. though the photo has nothing to do with that this is what it reminds me #justsaying #itsinstagramafterall 😉 #irrelevantbutrelevant #clearlyundersleptcaption
The source further added, "Also, since the story, this time around will be about Irrfan’s beti wanting to go abroad for further studies, the film will be shot in the US and London. Even the title is likely to change. The producers are planning to call it English Medium."
Prior to this, it was reported that Kareena Kapoor Khan was approached to play the female lead. There were also reports that Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol would be joining Irrfan too.
Meanwhile, Hindi Medium starred Irrfan Khan, Saba Qamar, Deepak Dobriyal and Dishita Sehgal in pivotal roles. Irrfan was last seen in the film Karwaan alongside Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar.
