On Friday, Irrfan Khan began shooting for his much-awaited 'Angrezi Medium' in Udaipur, after a year since he was diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour.
Sharing the happiness and gratitude, Irrfan Khan's wife Sutapa Sikdar wrote an emotional post on her Facebook account.
She wrote: "Longest year of our life . Time was never measured with pain and hope at the same time ever.while we take our babysteps back to work,to life I am submerged in prayers wishes and faith from friends relatives strangers and a connection with universe which gives us a small chance for this new start. It seems unbelievable …never ever I realized the meaning of the word unpredictable so well…never ever I could feel peoples wishes on my bones my breath my heartbeat which helped me to stay focused and kicking.. i cant take names because there are names and there are names I don’t even know who played angels. Sorry for not been able to answer individually but I know what you mean to us.
I don’t see beyond one day and that day is today where everything seems fine. For today we go back to work.and the dance and song of life continues.
Thank you for believing in your prayers."
Irrfan Khan too expressed his gratitude thanking his fans on Twitter a day before he started shooting the film. He wrote: "Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart."
Coming back to the film 'Angrezi Medium', according to the reports, Irrfan plays the role of Champak from Udaipur who owns a sweet shop unlike Raj Batra in 'Hindi Medium' who owned a sari shop. Twist in the story is that Champak's daughter wants to study in London and her father's background and language issues are the main obstacles that adds to the entire drama, said Dinesh Vijayan. Deepak Dobriyal plays Irrfan's brother in the film who owns another sweet shop right next to him in the lanes of Udaipur.
