Radhika Madan is venturing into a different zone with Irrfan Khan’s Angrezi Medium and the actress said her aim is to present something new with every film of hers.

A former TV actress, Radhika received critical acclaim for her last two films — Vishal Bharadwaj’s Pataakha, a tale about two warring sisters in a village, and Vasan Bala’s action comedy Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

Angrezi Medium, her third film, a sequel to Irrfan’s 2017 hit Hindi Medium, is in sync with Radhika’s current plan — to experiment as much as she can.

“We are now experiencing a new kind of films and I want to be a part of them. Pataakha was different from Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota and so is Angrezi Medium. I don’t want anyone to put me in a box, I want to surprise with everything that I do,” Radhika said. “I am an actor. Let me act, let me audition. Let me show what I can do. You need to surprise yourself every time and that will surprise the audience.”

Angrezi Medium presents the story of a father (Irrfan) and his daughter (Radhika), who wishes to study abroad. The actress, who auditioned to be cast in the Homi Adajania-directed film, said she had to get into shape to play Irrfan’s daughter.

“I thought the cast was locked as it is such a big project. But they hadn’t and so I tried out. I had finished Pataakha and I was looking a certain way. I had to look like a 17-year-old for the audition. For Dinesh Vijan (producer) and Homi, shape didn’t matter as they believed I could look the part. They didn’t ask me to get into shape but I felt I should,” Radhika said.

Also featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepak Dobriyal, Ranvir Shorey, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Tripathi, Angrezi Medium releases on March 13. Radhika said she felt overwhelmed on knowing the cast she would share screen space with. “I can’t believe I am in the same frame as Irrfan Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It didn’t hit me that I am shooting with them. Till the time, I saw the trailer, it didn’t hit me. I was teary-eyed as my name was coming after them.”
