A few weeks back, it was reported that Kareena Kapoor Khan has come on board Angrezi Medium, starring Irrfan Khan and that she will play a cop in the film. However, till Saturday, producer Dinesh Vijan did not confirm the name of the actress, instead just said that apart from Radhika Madan, who plays Irrfan's daughter, they are still in talks with another leading lady.
And now, Radhika has almost confirmed that Kareena is indeed the one. Her latest post has a hashtag with Kareena Kapoor Khan's name, thereby hinting that Bebo is, after all, a part of the project. We also hear that Kareena gave a go ahead to the project over the weekend. The producers of the film were in talks with her for a while but Kareena was taking her time to make up her mind as the actress is extremely choosy with the projects she does. However, with Radhika's post, it's now confirmed that she has indeed decided to do the film.
As the Pataakha actress started shooting for the film yesterday, she posted a picture of clapboard on social media and accidentally revealed the name of the leading lady in her caption. An elated Radhika wrote, “As excited as the man behind!So so so grateful for this new journey. @irrfan @homster @maddockfilms #kareenakapoorkhan #dineshvijan”
