•May 19, 2017• That’s a clipping from the theatres of the first day first show of Hindi Medium, on May 19th, 3 years ago. I could never have fathomed that 3 years later - May 19th 2020 would be a day we’d be in a world without Irrfan Sir, and with theatres shut globally. The oddity of our current times, sometimes really does frighten me. Regardless! Here’s celebrating 3 years of this beautiful film. 🧡 Forever grateful for being such a small part of such a beautiful story, and a hope that this serves as some form a message for every actor out there, that no part is too big or small. I was a 3rd year student in Delhi University when I shot for Hindi Medium, and the thought of just expanding my horizons by being around such inspirational artists meant the world to me. I’m glad I made time away from the academic pressure of writing my thesis in the final year of college, and went ahead and did this. Saved myself from a regret I’d have carried with myself forever. Films go on to become journeys so special, that they simply can’t be beaten down by trying to quantify each artist’s, technician’s, and contributor’s part to play in creating it. In loving memory. #WeMissYouIrrfan #3YearsOfHindiMedium
Well, truly it is disheartening to even think about Irrfan Khan's absence from the industry. However, his amazing performances will always keep him in the memories of fans. Incidentally, his last film turned out to be Hindi Medium's sequel, Angrezi Medium.
