Homi Adjania the director behind Irrfan Khan's Angrezi Medium has announced that his film will get a second release after the Coronavirus scare is dealt with. Over the past week, many states have completely shut theatres as a preventative measure against Coronavirus. Maharashtra, Kerala, and Karnataka were some of the first states to implement this.
This has severely affected box office returns for various films. The sequel to Hindi Medium, Angrezi Medium has now been pulled down. The director in a social media post wrote, "At midnight all theatres will close across India till the authorities give us further notice. We will re-release Angrezi Medium when it is safe to do so. Till then stay safe and be kind to each other.”
Previously Dinesh Vijan, the producer of the film also addressed the health crisis in the country. He said, " 'Angrezi Medium' has been a journey I shall cherish all my life. The one thing I've learned from its making is that whatever be the obstacle if we pour our heart and soul into something, the universe will have our back. As the film now reaches India, we have already received unabashed love from Dubai and other international territories. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it will however not release in Kerala, Delhi, and Jammu & Kashmir. We hope for the same affection and support you've been giving us since day one. Our movie will reach these places when the time is right, but rest assured, just like Irrfan said, 'wait for us'."
