Mumbai: The makers of ‘Hindi Medium’ earlier confirmed that ‘Hindi Medium 2’ will be produced by T-Series and Maddock Films. We have now come to know that director Homi Adajania, who made his directorial debut with an English film ‘Being Cyrus’ in 2005, has been finalised to direct the sequel to ‘Hindi Medium’.

Producer Bhushan Kumar confirms, “Having Homi on board as the director for ‘Hindi Medium 2’ is a blessing. I loved his black humour in his debut film ‘Being Cyrus’. He brings a distinct quirky quality to all the films he has directed so far. That certain mad quality he instils in his films is something I am sure ‘Hindi Medium 2’ will benefit from.”

Producer Dinesh Vijan adds, “Homi doesn’t make films very often as he refuses to do stuff that doesn’t bowl him over. But when we narrated this one to him, he loved it. And when we saw his reaction, it was a no-brainer! Homi was the most unlikely choice for ‘Hindi Medium 2’ and that’s exactly why we have signed him on.”

‘Hindi Medium’ was a film that fetched Irrfan Khan the Best Actor Award, and the actor will continue to be part of the sequel.

The rest of the cast of the film is yet to be finalized but buzz is that Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is being considered to play Irrfan Khan’s daughter in the story which moves forward by 10 years in the sequel. It is also not clear if Pakistani actress Saba Qamar who played Irrfan’s wife in ‘Hindi Medium’ will re-appear in the sequel.

‘Hindi Medium’ was directed by Saket Chaudhary, and the movie was widely appreciated by critics and audiences alike. Now that Homi has stepped in for the sequel, one wonders if there’s any issue between the makers and Saket, because of which he hasn’t been roped in for ‘Hindi Medium 2’?
