After battling with a rare form of cancer for two years, actor Irrfan Khan left for his heavenly abode three days ago, leaving his dear ones, colleagues and fans mourning the massive loss. Irrfan was last seen in Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium, a film we all looked forward to, after the significant success of his 2017 film Hindi Medium. However, as the theaters were shut owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the film only had a brief run in the cinemas.
Fans might seek a little solace in the fact that an unreleased film of the actor is yet to hit the theaters, although one does not know when that will happen. Apno Se Bewafai, a film that is awaiting a release since the past two years, was slated to come out on April 2nd, but could not. We reached out to director Prakash Bhalekar, who seemed to be in the dark as well. “We don’t have an idea yet. I guess the lock-down in Maharashtra is going to be extended till 18th May. Maybe after that. We will have some information by the 4th or 5th of May,” he said.
Angrezi Medium is now streaming on an OTT platform. Are there chances that his last film will have a digital release too? “Yes, they’ve given it (Angrezi Medium). However, we are yet to decide on that,” he answered.
Here’s hoping we get to see Irrfan on the big screen, one last time!
