Actor Irrfan Khan's upcoming movie Hindi Medium's trailer has been released and it depicts the difficulties parents face in order to get their children admitted in English medium schools. Pakistani TV actress Saba Qamar, who is playing the role of Irrfan's wife in the movie, is making her Bollywood debut with Hindi Medium. The trailer starts on a hilarious note where a foreigner coach teaches Irrfan and Saba on how to describe their daughter in English during admission interviews. The trailer shows how parents change their lifestyle and start speaking English to showcase that they are an 'upper class' family. However, their daughter still doesn't get admission and they decide to get their daughter admitted through 'gareeb quota.'
Saba Qamar in a shot can be heard saying, "In this country English is not a language it is a class. And the only way to get into this class is seeking education from a good school." Punjabi singer Sukhbir's famous song Ishq Tera Tadpave plays in the background and adds to the comic feel of the movie. Hindi Medium is a satire on Indian education system, which will hit the theatres on May 12.
Here's the trailer of Hindi Medium:
