Wonderful afternoon spent chatting with one of my favorite actresses - Kareena Kapoor. She spoke about her admiration for Diljit Dosanjh with whom she’s just completed her second film, about her excitement over working with Irrfan Khan in #EnglishMedium, why #Tashan may have been a dud but holds a special place in her heart, and how #SacredGames and #DelhiCrime have piqued her interest in possibly doing an original series. She also spoke about the challenges of raising the most photographed child in India. Interview coming soon! #kareenakapoor #kareenakapoorkhan #taimuralikhan #saifalikhan #bollywood #india #hindi
Kareena began the segment by gushing over Irrfan and confessing that she had been a "huge fan" of his work. Even though they are not paired romantically opposite each other, Kareena and Irrfan sharing screen-space ought to make for a good watch. "It's going to be quite a surreal experience. It's a small and interesting part, and like you said, " said the actress pointing towards Masand, "I thought I'd get out of my comfort zone and do a movie that would throw me into a different milieu."
Whether it was Cocktail director Homi Adajania, or Irrfan, Kareena confessed that the set-up of English Medium would be quite different to the genre of films that the actress has generally done.
Following his period of recuperation from neuroendocrine tumour, Irrfan's maiden project is this sequel to Hindi Medium. He plays Mr Champakji in the feature with Radhika Madan playing his daughter.
