Angrezi Medium: Radika Madan on working with Irrfan: He is magic on set, got to learn so much by observing him
Radhika Madan is the perfect example of an actor who took the plunge from television to films and succeeded at that. While she made her acting debut with Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha (2018), she was next seen in Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. But it is her third project that has her making headlines because Radhika will be seen sharing screen space with Irrfan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in Homi Adajania’s Angrezi Medium.
During an interview, Radhika opened up about working with Homi as she said that he is particular about readings and workshops and in order to prep for her role, which sees her play Irrfan’s daughter in the film, Radhika hung out in Udaipur and interacted with the youngsters there since the role required her to perfect the local dialect. But when Radhika was quizzed about sharing screen space with Irrfan, she was all praises for Irrfan as she said that he is sheer magic on screen. “It was the easiest project for me because acting is all about reacting to someone's performance. Irrfan sir was magic on set and made the process effortless. I got to learn so much merely by observing him,” said Madan.
Although Radhika is only three films old, she feels that she is an actor in the makin and she lucked out in the world of movies. “I lucked out in the movies. I am a terrible planner, so I am leaving my career to the universe. I want to pick projects that make me jump on my bed with excitement,” informed Radhika. For all those who don’t know, Angrezi Medium is the sequel to Irrfan’s hit film Hindi Medium and Angrezi Medium marks his return to films after a year-long break.
