Elaborating about why he chose to do this film, the Piku star Irrfan Khan said, "I did this film because it was a very interesting combination". While Irfan Khan is all set for Hindi Medium for release on January 25, Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are treating their fans with Half Girlfriend on the same day.
The film has been declared tax-free in Maharashtra and Gujarat.
Hindi Medium revolves around a couple (Irrfan and Saba Qamar) trying to seek admission for their child in a good school, and the (comic) lengths they resort to for their goal.
Director Saket Chaudhary's "Hindi Medium" holds a mirror up to our society, where the ability to speak English is the yardstick to measure sophistication and elitism. Producer Bhushan Kumar agreed, adding, "We're overwhelmed with the love our film has received".
Actor Irrfan Khan, who was also present at the screening, said: "This is a great step, more people will watch the movie as it is tax-free now". So it needs to reach a wider audience. He hoped that the film got tax exemption in other states as well. "Today morning (Wednesday), we met the Gujarat CM and he told us about putting a cap on annual fee charged by self-financed schools across the state". Producer Dinesh Vijan was full of praise for his lead actor.
The video start-up with the continuation of the conversation with AIB sort of making comeback ranting their success poshis film promotion.
