Internationally known actor Irrfan Khan has finally returned back to action as he returned to the sets for shooting Angrezi Medium on Friday, after a long battle with neuroendocrine tumour.
Back in March 2018, Khan had announced about his neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis and that went to London for treatment. Irrfan Khan had returned to India from abroad in February 2019 and has been spotted around sporting a mask at airports on different occasions. Recently, the paparazzi spotted Irrfan removing the mask at Mumbai airport, and soon, the actor announced that he will be returning to acting within few days. After a yearlong break, the actor has finally returned back to his healthy avatar and back to business – back to acting, a place where he belongs.
On Friday, the sequel of Khan’s 2017 movie Hindi Medium, titled as Angrezi Medium officially hit the shooting floor in Udaipur, where the actor made his first healthier appearance after being cured from the ailment. Directed by Homi Adajania of Cocktail fame and produced by Dinesh Vijan, Angrezi Medium is a much-awaited movie that narrates a father-daughter story where Irrfan’s onscreen daughter played by Radhika Madan goes to London for higher studies. It is believed that the upcoming film has signed Kareena Kapoor Khan for the female lead actor against Irrfan’s character.
What better start to this Friday than starting something that you all have been waiting for! 🎬

As the film shooting started in Udaipur, and will also be shot in London – Irrfan Khan took it to Twitter to share a note on his return to acting sets. The tweets said, “Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart”.
