The sequel to Saba Qamar’s Hindi Medium will feature Bollywood’s most romantic onscreen pair Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
Although the iconic duo is famous for pairings in romantic flicks, and Hindi Medium was far from it, the casting couch decided otherwise.
Saba Qamar was the female lead in Saket Choudhary’s 2017 Hindi Medium. While Kajol willl step in for Qamar, Bollywood’s badshah will replace Irfan Khan.
The news isn’t confirmed and no one at the helm of the project has made any such announcements. Meanwhile rumor has it the Dilwale couple have already started their preliminary script reading sessions (not that they need that much practice given their on screen chemistry).
King Khan and Kajol earned their name as Bollywood’s most romantic on-screen couple through roles in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Dilwale Dhulaniya and My Name is Khan.
The Bombay Times report that producer Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films has approached the dynamic duo for Hindi Medium 2. The news outlet merely suggested that the pair may be joining Irfan Khan in the sequel. Later rumors sparked that the duo might actually be replacing Khan and Qamar.
News on role replacements in the film’s making did confirm that Saket Chaudhary, the director of the first film has been replaced by Homi Adajania. Adajania is known for projects like Cocktail (2012) and Finding Fanny (2014). Not your social drama like Hindi Medium so may the difference in choice of casting makes sense.
Based on what Saket Choudhary said, the film will be based in the United States.
Other rumors include the news of Sara Ali Khan being cast for the role of the daughter in Hindi Medium 2. Does that mean the character of Pia is all grown up now?
This news, much like the casting of Shahrukh and Kajol, is unconfirmed.
