Angrezi Medium, starring Irrfan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, witnessed a good start after hitting the theaters on Friday, March 13th. With many cities announcing shutting of cinema halls due to coronavirus outbreak, Irrfan’s comeback film managed to earn Rs 4.03 cr approx. on Day 1 according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film had been in the buzz since its announcement and fans were waiting to witness Irrfan’s magic on the big screen once again after two years. However, the current situation hasn’t worked well for the release of the film.
Coronavirus scare has already hit the box office hard in India. The entertainment industry is facing huge losses as the shoots are getting canceled, halls are getting shut and travelling has become a distant dream for everyone. According to trade analysts, it was said that Angrezi Medium would rake in Rs 5-6 cr on its first day, considering it is Irrfan and Kareena’s first film together. The film also stars Deepak Dobriyal, Dimple Kapadia and Radhika Madan in pivotal roles.
