The film collected Rs 2.75 cr on Saturday and Rs 2.25 on Sunday making it a total collection of Rs 9 cr. Writing the first-day collection of Irrfan Khan starrer, Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#AngreziMedium Fri ₹ 4.03 cr. #India biz.

Announcing the release of the film, Homi Adajania had taken it to his Insta story and had written, “At midnight all theaters will be close across India till authorities give us further notice. We will re-release #AngreziMedium when it is safe to do so. Till then stay safe and be kind to each other. #johaisohai.”
SpotboyE Editor Vickey Lalwani watched the film and rated it with 3 stars. His review read, “Irrfan is excellent, it is so commendable that he has given such an energetic performance after being struck with a serious illness. The track between Kareena and Dimple Kapadia is superb. Deepak Dobriyal, Ranvir Shorey and Pankaj Tripathi are fab.” (ALSO READ: Angrezi Medium, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar To Suffer Losses After CM Shuts Mumbai Theatres Due To Coronavirus; Trade Expert Says 'Big Blow To The Industry'– EXCLUSIVE)
