Radhika Madan: Irrfan sir made Angrezi Medium easy for me
Irrfan & Radhika Madan ’s lovable chemistry in Angrezi Medium has become a point of conversation. The actors play father & daughter in the film, directed by Homi Adjania , which talks about equations between parents & children, & sky-high aspirations. Radhika spent a considerable amount of time working with Irrfan in Udaipur & in London where big chunks of the film were shot. When we spoke to Radhika about working extensively with Irrfan , she beamed, “From day one, he seemed completely at ease playing my father. Homi had told me this -- he had seen it in his eyes while shooting our first set of scenes together. There was that genuine fatherly love. In a matter of days, I started to feel like his daughter. At times, when we were not shooting or were in the middle of canning a shot, I would play his daadhi or adjust his costume ya unko dhoop se bachati thi. On set, he was my papa. The moment we wrapped up for the day, he became Irrfan sir & I was Radhika, his colleague. I didn’t have to labour on this aspect because Irrfan sir made it easy for me. With co-actors like him, Kareena Kapoor Khan & Deepak Dobriyal All you have to do is react.
