A spiritual sequel to the 2017 film Hindi Medium, the film stars Irrfan, Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal and Kareena Kapoor Khan,. Filming began in Udaipur on 5 April 2019 and was completed by July in London. This was Irrfan’s final film to be released before his death on 29 April 2020.

The film was theatrically released in India on 13 March 2020. With its theatrical performance affected by the closing of cinemas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, plans for a re-release were cancelled and the film was made available digitally less than a month after its release on Disney+ Hotstar. Champak Bansal is a widower and a sweet-shop owner in Udaipur, Rajasthan. He often fights with his half-brother Gopi, who runs a competing sweet-shop, but they’re greatly fond of each other.

Champak’s daughter Tarika has always harboured a dream to travel and study abroad. Though she is poor in studies, Champak is strongly supportive of her dream, and, with some effort, she secures a high rank in her final school examinations, enough for her to secure a scholarship from London’s Truford University, which has partnered with her school. On the school’s Annual Day, Champak notices that the chief guest is Judge Chheda, who had accepted a watch as a bribe from Gopi a few days before so that he could win the rights to the Ghasiteram name. He goes on stage and exposes the judge who had emphasised on honesty and values in his speech, not knowing that he is the principal’s husband. The following morning, he meets the principal at her home and asks for forgiveness, only for her to tear Tarika’s scholarship letter to pieces and throw it on his face. He vows to send Tarika to London, come what may.

With the help of a London-based acquaintance, Bablu, Champak and Tarika along with Gopi proceed to London so that Tarika can find accommodation there till college opens. However, Champak and Gopi are caught and interrogated by the airport police. When they inadvertently say that they have ‘drugs’, they are deported and their passports blacklisted. Tarika, who had been calling Champak, Gopi and Bablu to no avail, goes to a rented home, and starts enjoying the free-spirited London life while also trying to fund her education. Meanwhile, Champak and Gopi are referred to a fixer in Dubai, Tony, who gives them Pakistani aliases and forged passports. They return to London, under the names of Abdul Razzaq and Saqlain Mushtaq, and are briefly accosted by Naina, a cop. They find lodging in a house owned by Mrs. Kohli, who is Naina’s estranged mother.
