You know the life of the elites is never easy, our journey to becoming moneyed is plagued with obstacles. So when I watched Hindi Medium two years ago, I felt I was finally starting to relate to the mediocre Bollywood. The story of a well off couple from Chandni Chowk moving into South Delhi will always be a tear jerking moment for me. I have a soft corner for Chandni Chowk especially since I have to gift my friends first copies of designer lehengas every now and then and tell them how the designers owed me favours. I think I could have been a brilliant con woman but my poker face only works at kitty parties. Well that’s the downsides of being a rich woman- there’s no one to con!
Anyhow, returning to the film, my husband felt my personality resembled the lead heroine and this comparison offended me. I wouldn’t be caught dead with that moral compass. To prove this I made him buy me a big rock out of our children’s college fund! Now every time I go to The Big chill in Khan Market, I request a table for two, after all my solitaire needs a seat of its own.
So imagine my happiness when I got a text from my friend returning from London asking me to guess who’s back?! It is none other than Irrfan Khan! Yes the actor has made a good recovery from a neuroendocrine tumour and has returned to shoot for the sequel of Hindi Medium. Directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium has officially gone on floors. I am so glad they’re making a sequel. I will take my husband for it, who knows I might get another rock but this time I’ll prefer it to be a little lighter. I don’t want my fingers hurting the next time I am typing my gossip to you netizens. Haha JK. Meow!
