Good news for Irrfan Khan fans! Hindi Medium coming back with a sequel.

Irrfan Khan fans have a good reason to rejoice. The actor's much-loved award winning social-dramedy - 'Hindi Medium' is coming back to the big screens with a sequel.

The scoop is that - though Irrfan may again star in the part of the comedy-drama (perhaps reprising the same role), Pakistani actress Saba Qamar will not be returning to feature in the sequel.

According to a close source:

“The story fast-forwards by a decade, so five-year-old Pia will be in her teens now – around 15-16 years of age. The story will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with little reference to the original. Also, Director Saket Chaudhary won’t be a part of this sequel."

Despite moderate critical reception, 'Hindi Medium' delivered a strong performance at the Box Office, grossing over 102 crores worldwide against its mild budget of 16 crores.

The movie also won the 'Best Picture' award at the 2018 Filmfare awards while Irrfan also grabbed the 'Best Actor' trophy for his role in it.

As the sequel's plot is said to be going through the final 'finishing touches' - we may get to have an official word on it soon!

Do you think a sequel will be able to carry the original's tight-script and thought-provoking message?
