Irrfan Khan is one of the best actors we have in the Indian film industry. He was last seen in the film Karwaan in 2018 and was highly praised for his performance in it. Last year in March, the actor shared the news that he has been diagnosed with Neuro Endocrine tumour. Since then, Irrfan is in London undergoing treatment for the same.

The actor is expected to return soon to India and work on his films. There are reports that he will be doing Udham Singh biopic and also Hindi Medium sequel once he returns. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, film-maker Shoojit Sircar revealed that the Piku actor liked the story within just 10-minutes of the meeting. The October director said that when he informed Irrfan about the role, the actor started jumping with joy and said he the role is something he had been waiting for all his life. 

Shoojit stated that they were supposed to start the shoot last year. However, Irrfan had to leave the country for the treatment. But he is quite optimistic that Irrfan will be better once he returns and called him one of the finest actors. 

Shoojit Sircar said, "We have had a lot of heart-to-heart discussions over the last year which has only strengthened our bond. I know that whenever he gets back, I am hopeful it will be soon, his experience over the last year will add a lot of depth to the performance."
