April 06 : Filmmaker Karan Johar just took to his social media profile and hailed Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Radhika Madan starrer Angrezi Medium and also announced that the film is out on DisneyPlus Hotstar.
Maddock Films Angrezi Medium is now out of Hotstar. The film directed by Homi Adajania released on 13 March this year and was commercially hit by the closure of cinema halls and multiplexes in some states including Maharashtra over the same weekend due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Karan Johar just tweeted, “This incredibly special film is now streaming on @DisneyPlusHS!! #AngreziMedium Is the perfect family watch! It’s the sunshine we all need! @MaddockFilms #homiadajania @irrfank #radhikamadan #KareenaKapoorKhan #DeepakDobriyal #dimplekapadia @TripathiiPankaj”
Angrezi Medium also starred Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Tripathi, Deepak Dobriyal, Ranvir Shorey, Tillotama Shome and more.
Adajania had earlier said that they would consider re-releasing Angrezi Medium in theatres once the pandemic was over and it was safer. However, given the continuing uncertainity, the makers might have decided to go ahead with a digital premiere of the film.
Angrezi Medium released to mixed reviews earlier this month. While Irrfan, Deepak and the rest of the cast was praised for their terrific performances, the script and direction was found lacking the same spark.
