We already know that there will be a sequel to the Irrfan Khan-Saba Qamar starrer Hindi Medium.

The Saket Chaudhary-directed movie garnered widespread praise and received high critical acclaim after its initial 2017 release. Written by Zeenat Lakhani, Hindi Medium is a story about what the parents (Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar) of a five-year-old girl would do to get their daughter educated at a reputed English medium school.

The movie ended up winning the award for the Best Film at the 2018 Jio Filmfare Awards.

It was also reported that Sara Ali Khan — who is supposed to make her Bollywood debut alongside Sushant Singh Rajput with the movie Kedarnath — has been roped in to play the role of Irrfan Khan's daughter in the sequel of Hindi Medium.

Now, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the makers of the movie have found a director for the sequel.

Homi Adajania — who has been a longtime collaborator with both Dinesh Vijan and Saif Ali Khan — is being brought on board to direct the sequel for Hindi Medium. Adajania has earlier directed movies like Being Cyrus, Cocktail and Finding Fanny, all of which have been produced by Dinesh Vijan.

Dinesh Vijan confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror, saying, “Homi doesn’t make films very often as he refuses to do stuff that doesn’t bowl him over. But when I narrated this one to him, he loved it. And when I saw his reaction, it was a no-brainer! I guess from our production house’s stable of directors, Homi was the most unlikely choice for Hindi Medium 2 and that’s exactly why I have signed him on.”

Homi Adajania, who hasn't directed a movie since 2014's Finding Fanny, said he enjoyed Hindi Medium so much that he told Vijan he'd be happy to direct it if he had no director attached to the project.
