Pankaj will essay the role of Tony, a wheeler-dealer, who runs a travel agency. As the plot unfolds, he will play a significant role in the storyline and aid Khan's character and his onscreen daughter, Radhika, to reach the UK. Revealing that the decision of being part of the film is more of an emotional one, Tripathi said, “It is my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinoo (Dinesh Vijan) that made me say yes.”
Angrezi Medium marks Irrfan's return to the celluloid after his cancer treatment in the US, which makes this big screen outing all the more special. The actor was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour last year and ever since he shared the news with the world of social media, his fans, followers and admirers prayed for his healing and recovery.
