Late actor Irrfan Khan's Angrezi Medium is the first Bollywood film to release in Dubai as theatres re-open

Angrezi Medium released in India in early March. The film had to unexpectedly close at theatres across the country with the outbreak of Coronavirus in India. It later got released for the Indian public on the streaming platform Hotstar. Angrezi Medium has received a positive response from critics and fans alike after its run on the big screen as well as on the digital platform. Angrezi Medium is now once again ready to hit theatres somewhere outside India. This time the film is hitting theatres in Dubai instead. Theatres across the middle eastern nation are soon going to rerelease Angrezi Medium. Angrezi Medium is the very first Bollywood film to hit theatres in Dubai after the pandemic halted theatres.

 
The film stars late actor Irrfan Khan as well as Kareena Kapoor Khan. Irrfan Khan passed away earlier this month due to a severe colon infection. Fans of the acclaimed actor are expected to visit Dubai theatres to watch their favourite star on the big screen for the last time.
 
The film is a spiritual successor to Hindi Medium. Homi Adajania has directed Angrezi Medium. The film also stars Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobariyal, Ranveer Shorey, and Pankaj Tripathi in pivotal roles.
 
As the pandemic continues to infect people across the world Dubai theatres are going to follow extremely strict rules and regulations. Every theatre will only host 30% of its capacity. Every viewer will also be checked for their temperature and must wear face masks throughout the film. People above the age of 60 or children below the age of 12 are also prohibited from visiting any theatre.
