Though Irrfan Khan starrer Angrezi Medium got hit by Corona virus yesterday, it could earn enough to beat the sequel 2017’s superhit film, Hindi Medium at the box office on the first day.
Irrfaan Khan is back after giving some wonderful comedy dramas like Hindi Medium, Blackmail, Qarib Qarib Single, Piku and Karwaan in past years which has made him quite popular among the mainstream audience (he is loved among the niche audience thanks to the beautiful acting in films like Lunch box, Paan Singh Tomato). This time Irrfaan is supported by Deepak Dobriyal, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Radhika Madan while Homi Adjania (Being Cyrus, Fanny Khan and Cocktail) has taken the director’s seat from Saket Chaudhary.
The reviews of Angrezi Medium is good but not great which has led the morning shows occupancy with just 8-10%. Due to the major cities like Delhi and Mumbai being shut down owing to the Corono Virus scare, Angrezi Medium got badly hit which led an opening of Rs 4.03 crores on the first day which has beaten the opening day figure of Hindi Medium which collected Rs 2.81 crore on its first day.
Angrezi Medium is made on a budget of Rs 35 crore (Production Cost: 25 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 10 Crore) produced by Dinesh Vijan under the Maddock film Productions.
