So, I had to tick that box of acting with Irrfan Khan. Here she plays a cop, a role she is actually never done before. I know I am too excited, and I am really looking forward to this one.”
Comment(s) While speaking to IANS, the actor said, “Oh God, I am super excited for this film. Kareena Kapoor shares screen space with Irrfan Khan in Angrezi Medium. Kareena Kapoor had earlier said that Irrfan Khan is the biggest Khan. We wanted to introduce this character who would be taken forward in the franchise, and she is perfect for it. The plot of the film is still hazy but we can be sure that a large part of the action takes place in the English capital. But for me, it is an honour and privilege to work with Irrfan Khan.”
She added, “He is the pioneer, one of the finest actors among all the Khans if I may say, and he is the biggest Khan for me. We will be shooting in London this June, and it will be great to be back on set with her.”
Earlier, Kareena had expressed her joy on working with Irrfan Khan. Talking about casting Kareena Kapoor in the film, producer Dinesh Vijan had said in a statement, “Kareena is a great addition to our franchise. Angrezi Medium is a very special film, and I am excited that she is going to be a part of it. I have worked with all the Khans – Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif. I know it is a small role but that does not matter. Angrezi Medium is being directed by Homi Adjania. Advertising
In the first look, Kareena is wearing a half tucked-in shirt and jeans. She has a badge on her waist that suggests her character is a part of London’s Metropolitan Police Service.
