Irrfan Khan is a man of many talents. The actor is set to return to the screen as a romantic lead in the next T-Series production. This time, he will be wooing the latest import from Pakistan, Saba Qamar, in Hindi Medium. Saba is well known across the border for her performance in Manto (2015), and has also acted in a number of television serials. Khan, meanwhile, will be appearing on screen in Nishikant Kamat's Madaari (2016) which releases on 10 June. 

Hindi Medium is reportedly set in Chandni Chowk, and the duo will play a married couple trying to make it big. Saba is the latest import from Pakistan to try her hand at Hindi cinema. She follows a long list of actors, including Fawad Khan, Mawra Hocane, and Raees actress Mahira Khan.

Hindi Medium is directed by Saket Chaudhary and produced by Dinesh Vijan and Bhushan Kumar. It is set to go on the floors in August this year, and is scheduled to release in the summer of 2017.
