New Delhi :
Irrfan Khan and Radhika Madan starrer Angrezi Medium has received an average response at the box office amidst the outbreak of coronavirus. According to a Box Office India report, the film has collected an estimated Rs 2.50-2.75 crore on Sunday (day three) which takes its first weekend total to an estimated Rs 9.50 crore.
The report states, ''It is hard to judge as it was hardly being screened in the metros on Saturday and where it was screened like Gurgaon and Noida the Saturday, growth was not much maybe due to Corona fear. It’s impossible to judge the real value growth on Saturday city numbers as the performance was not like a normal Saturday.''
On the opening day, Angrezi Medium managed to collect Rs 4.03 crore. Sharing the day 1 collection, trade analyst Taran Adarsh had written on Saturday, ''#AngreziMedium Fri 4.03 cr. #India biz. Note: Biz has been severely affected due to closure of cinema halls in several states. #CoronaVirus #COVID19.''
The film depicts the beautiful father-daughter relationship in the most hard-hitting way. It is a journey of a father who strives hard to give his daughter the best education. The film also stars Deepak Dobriyal and Kareena Kapoor.
Amitabh Bachchan recently sent a hand-written note and flowers to Radhika after watching her performance in Angrezi Medium. The actor took to Instagram, where she shared the note which read: ''I write to you with the greatest of admiration for your work in ‘Angrezi Medium’. I saw the film yesterday and just could not resist writing to you. What a mature and balanced performance you have given. Prosperity and success to you.''

I dont know what to say or write..I'm speechless and so so so overwhelmed! @amitabhbachchan sir its an honor to receive this . I always used to imagine my door bell ringing after my film's release and a person standing outside saying "Amitabh Bacchan sir ne aapke liye phool aur ek note bheja hai" and me fainting right after that. Thankfully I didn't faint when I actually received it..I just stood there for a few seconds soaking it all in, teary eyed,in gratitude. Thank you for making my dream come true Sir . It has motivated me to work even harder and entertain my audience with even more honest performances. #AngreziMediumð 14.3.2020
