Hindi Medium also features Pakistani actor Sabah Qamar in a pivotal role and focuses on the pressures that parents go through when it comes to admitting their children in the best schools. The movie shows Irrfan and Sabah trying to get admission for their daughter in one of the affluent English medium schools and to what extent they go to make it possible. They shift from Chandni Chowk to Vasant Kunj and host a party for their rich neighbours. In fact, they even try to handpick friends for their daughter. The film released in India on May 19, 2017, and received a positive response from critics and audience alike. The film eventually turned out to be one of the successful movies of 2017 at the box office.
