Radhika Madan opened up on working with Irrfan in Angrezi Medium
Radhika Madan 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. Radhika has been praising Irrfan’s acting since then.
Actress Radhika Madan has made quite a name for herself in the film industry for her talent and has also bagged a number of big-ticket films, all within her first year.
Homi Adajania’s ‘Angrezi Medium’ is a sequel to the success of ‘Hindi Medium’ starring Irrfan Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in leading roles.
Speaking about her character in a recent interview, Radhika said that it is different from who she is as a person and was by far her “toughest role” yet.
“I had to tweak my voice a little bit because she is a 17-year-old girl from Udaipur. I had to just let go of Radhika. My dialogue isn’t exactly what they speak in Udaipur but it isn’t Hindi as well. So I had to get into that headspace too,” she said in an interview.
“He was Magic on Set,” Says Radhika Madan on Working with Irrfan Khan in Angrezi Medium
Opening up about working with Irrfan, who returns to screen after a sabbatical due to his ill health, she gushed about how it was an enriching learning experience.
“Just observing him is enough. How he approaches a scene, how effortlessly he performs. I used to ask him a lot of questions. He doesn’t talk much and isn’t the kind of person who says ‘this is what I did and this is how I prep.’ Even if my scenes were not scheduled I would just come to set some days to observe how he functions.”
When Radhika Khan 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.
The film is slated to hit the theatres on April 2020.
