Actor Pankaj Tripathi will be seen making a guest appearance in Irrfan’s upcoming film Angrezi Medium.
Angrezi Medium, helmed by Homi Adajania, is a sequel to the 2017 hit Hindi Medium, starring Irrfan and Pakistani actor Saba Qamar. The sequel, work on which began last week in Udaipur, will see Kareena Kapoor Khan play wife to Irrfan and Radhika Madan their daughter.
On his role,Tripathi told IANS, “It’s a cameo appearance. It’s my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinu (Dinesh) that made me say yes to it. I always wanted to work with Irrfan and when Dinu offered me this role, I immediately agreed even if it’s just a cameo role.”
The Gurgaon actor will be seen playing the role of a wheeler-dealer, Tony, who runs a travel agency and helps Madan reach the UK.
Dinesh Vijan and Pankaj Tripathi have worked together on films like Stree and Luka Chuppi.
Irrfan, who has returned to the screen after a gap of almost one year having recovered from neuroendocrine tumour, shared his first look from the film on Twitter.
“GMB serving since 1900s It’s going to be fun to tell another story #AngreziMedium. Coming soon, with Mr Champakji…Aa Raha Hu phir entertain Karne Sabko #ItsTimeToKnowChampakJi #AngreziMedium,” he wrote along with the photo.”
