‘Nepotism’ has become the new hot topic of Bollywood. Following this, BollywoodLife conducted an interview with Radhika Madan, who has been seen in ‘Angrezi Medium’ with Late. actor Irrfan Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Apart from describing her perspective of ‘Nepotism,’ she speaks about how she begged for the movies she had in her kitty.
Speaking about the heated debate of Outsiders V/S Star Kids, Radhika stated- “Your job is to just ask for the audition, that is it. I literally went to the producers and asked them to let me audition. And that’s how I got roles, that’s how I got Pataakha, that’s how I got Angrezi (Angrezi Medium). I literally went and said, ‘Can I audition?’ That is the most outsiders can do. You need to stop cribbing and start working on yourself. There’s a situation, accept it, and move on. Will it change? I don’t know. In the meantime, though, can we just utilize this time by not complaining and working on ourselves. The issues have been put out, yes. I’m not denying it, let’s not run away from it. I’m not saying to not address the issue; it has been addressed. Everybody is aware, All I’m saying is to not put all your energies into it, but rather, work on yourself.”
When asked what she was doing when she did not have any movie, Madan said- “Mard was shelved for like one-and-a-half years, so what could I do? I didn’t have anything on my plate during that time; then I didn’t crib during that time. Instead, and I sat and worked on myself. I told myself, ‘Yaar. Radhika, after this, you’re not going to get time later, so how much you can learn now, learn. So I learned different crafts. I started painting; I started watching films that I hadn’t watched before, I continued with my martial arts training, which helped me in the film (Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota) because the film had suddenly begun and there was not much time then, so thankfully I got time to practice my martial arts. I learned so many things; it’s about how you see it, what you became a person.”
