All India Bakchod and Irrfan Khan re-imagined the viral memes of the internet as part of the promotion for Irrfan Khan's upcoming movie "Hindi Medium". The film is about the pressure that parents go through during the admissions if their kids in school.

The film is about the couple that goes to every length to admit their daughter in a prestigious English medium school. The movie is helmed by Saket Chaudhary and has hit the silver screens on May 19, 2017.

Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, Mohit Suri and Chetan Bhagat, Half Girlfriend is a cinematic adaptation of Bhagat's novel of the same name. It has been released across 2500 screens in India. This gives hope to the film because there is a chance that movie goers would opt to spend their money on a well-received movie.

Both films are about the conflict between traditional and modern India, with Half Girlfriend exploring the ambiguity of relationships in India while Hindi Medium deals with intellectual snobbery in the education system.

To this, the producer added, "The film is a tribute to the hard work and determination of one individual, but it is also an inspiring lesson for the youth of today who clearly needs a real-life hero, to prove to them that success comes to those who strive, against all odds". On the other hand, SS Rajamouli's film, Baahubali 2, is still going strong and has achieved the status of the first Indian film to earn Rs 1500 crore at the box office. AIB introduces Khan as "dank Irrfan" and well, he doesn't disappoint! We will just have to wait and watch.
