Irrfan Khan-starrer 'Hindi Medium' is out of the triangular box office contest on May 12. Supposed to release alongside an Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 'Sarkar 3' and YRF's 'Meri Pyaari Bindu', the film has been postponed by a week and will now lock horns with Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's 'Half Girlfriend'.
The reason behind a last-minute change in date, the makers say, is to ensure that the cast gets more time to spread the word about the film. Producer Dinesh Vijan says, "After watching the film, we felt we should give an extra week to promotions since it has the potential."
Co-producer, T-Series boss Bhushan Kumar says, "We are happy and proud of the final product and feel that this film deserves to be promoted more so that we can reach out to more people."
Interestingly, 'Hindi Medium' revolves around a couple (Irrfan and Saba Qamar) trying to seek admission for their child in a good school, while in 'Half Girlfriend', Arjun's rustic, desi character struggles to speak English.
