‘Hindi Medium’ is based on original material: Irrfan

Kolkata: Actor Irrfan Khan today said that the script of his upcoming movie Hindi Medium is based on original and further mentioned that its is also a real life incident.

“Well, the film is inspired by a real life incident… It should say inspired by or based on real life incidents. It is a debatable thing and one should debate upon it,” the actor told the media here.

“Hindi Medium” stars Irrfan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in the lead. Directed by Saket Chaudhary, “Hindi Medium” is a story about how education that is supposed to be a tool of enlightenment has become a tool to create inequality.

This inequality is created on the basis of English medium schools versus regional language schools and private schools versus government schools. It has been described as a light-hearted romantic film about a young couple in Chandni Chowk in Delhi who aspire to move into society’s upper crust.
