Powerhouse performer Irrfan Khan has always left his fans impressed with his acting chops, be it a vicious villain or a comedy the actor has nailed them all perfectly. His fans were in a state of shock when the ‘Karwaan’ star revealed that he is suffering from cancer and is currently seeking treatment in London. Irrfan was slated to star in the sequel of 2017’s hit film ‘Hindi Medium’ before he was diagnosed with cancer. But producer Dinesh Vijan has put the project on hold until he recovers.

Recently, there were reports that after completing his treatment, Irrfan Khan will be seen in Shoojit Sircar‘s Uddham Singh biopic. Soon rumours abounded that the ‘Hindi Medium’ sequel is shelved.

Producer Dinesh Vijan has opened up on the subject in an exclusive interview to Pinkvilla. On being asked if ‘Hindi Medium 2’ is shelved, he said, “I don’t know about that actually. Irrfan is a friend. There has been so much speculation, Hindi Medium has got so much love. But you have to wait for an official announcement to know what we are doing. He is doing well and he is recovering well and we all wish for his speedy recovery. Once he is well, we will decide what is what.”

He further added, “Hindi Medium is about Irrfan Khan. But right now, priority is his health. Then we will announce.

We would love to see our favourite actor on the big screen soon.
