'He was magic on set and made the process effortless': Radhika Madan on working with Irrfan in Angrezi Medium


Having an impressive resume that includes renowned television shows, Radhika Madan made her Bollywood debut in Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha (2018) and went on to star in Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. Now she is all set to play Irrfan's daughter in Angrezi Medium, the sequel to his 2017 hit Hindi Medium. The film, which marks Irrfan's return to Bollywood after he took a break to seek treatment for neuroendocrine tumour, is helmed by Homi Adajania and stars Kareena Kapor Khan in a small yet significant role of a policewoman.

Talking about the project, Radhika told a leading daily, "Homi [Adajania, director] is particular about readings and workshops. As part of my prep, I hung out in Udaipur and interacted with the youngsters there. The role also required me to perfect the local dialect." Since she has seen Irrfan at work from close quarters, Radhika is in complete awe of him. "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," she added. Not just him, she talked about her other co-star, Kareena, and gushed, "Being in the same frame as her was a dream come true for me."

Last but not the least, Radhika claimed herself to be an "actor in the making". "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," she signed off by saying.

Bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films, Angrezi Medium also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Deepak Dobriyal.
