Collecting Rs. 4.03 crore on Day 1, Homi Adjania directorial beat Anubhav Sinha's Thappad's Day 1 collection.
The makers of Irrfan Khan's Angrezi Medium will be re-releasing the film in Kerala, Delhi, Mumbai and Jammu, and Kashmir - regions where cinema halls will remain shut till March 31 due to the outbreak of deadly virus.
Homi Adjania, who has produced the project under his Maddock Films banner, said the team will soon announce the new release date of the film.
"Our movie will reach these places when the time is right, but rest assured, just like Irrfan said. "Wait for us," he added.
Also starring Deepak Dobriyal, Radhika Madan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Pankaj Tripathi, "Angrezi Medium" is Irrfan's first film after he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumor in 2018. He is currently undergoing treatment abroad and skipped the promotional events of the film citing health issues.
I wanted to do this film knowing it would be against the odds. I wanted to do it for all the wrong reasons to make a film but they just seemed so right and still do. It’s been an emotional roller coaster more than anything else and I know how hard it’s been for everyone. Irrfan Khan, you are incredible ... and you’re a decent actor as well 😂. I love you more than I know how to say. Thank you to my crew and cast for not letting the odds stack up against us. I truly believe that our collective positivity and celebration of life allowed us this. Regardless of this film’s fate, it’s shown me a lighter way of being and I’ll always cherish this. 😊🙏 #itsawrap #angrezimedium #adioslondon @irrfan #iflifegivesyoulemonsgrabsometequila 📷 @harjeetsphotography @maddockfilms 🙏 #dineshvijan
