Last year, Irrfan Khan left the entire nation in shock when he shared that he was diagnosed with high-grade cancer. The actor went to London for his treatment and returned to Mumbai just a few days back. Irrfan is reportedly all set to begin the shoot of Hindi Medium 2 soon. The film is a sequel to the 2017-released Hindi Medium. 

According to a report in DNA, the makers of the film have approached Radhika Apte and Radhika Madan to play the female leads in the movie. While Radhika will reportedly play the role of Irrfan’s wife, Radhika Madan will portray Irrfan’s teenage daughter. A sourced informed the portal, ''The makers have approached Radhika Apte to play Irrfan’s wife. TV actress Radhika Madan, who made her Bollywood debut with Pataakha last year, will be mostly seen as Irrfan’s teenage daughter.”

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.
