Over the years, Irrfan Khan has been seen in a mix of some commercial, offbeat and international cinema. His talent has been unquestionable and this is something that was demonstrated all over again in this week’s release Hindi Medium as well.
From the Box Office perspective, he has been riding up the ladder and while Jazbaa and Piku had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan/Deepika Padukone giving him company, he was pretty much flying solo in films Talvar and Madaari. Now from the sole lead perspective where the opening is entirely dependent on him, Irrfan has made a fair start with Hindi Medium.
The film has taken an opening of 2.81 crore which is better than Madaari [2.25 crore] and Talvar [2.50 crore].
