It has been over three months that Irrfan Khan passed away. Radhika, who co-starred with the late actor in his last release, has an interesting anecdote as she recalls working with him. Radhika Madan opened up on the bond she shared with Irrfan on the sets of their film, “Angrezi Medium”, and shared how she used to call him “papa” or “dad”. In the film, Irrfan played Radhika’s father.
“I never addressed him as sir, I always addressed him as ‘papa’ or ‘dad’! He would just smile. I remember when I first met him and I called him ‘dad’, instead of feeling weird about it, he gave me a big hug. I will always remember him as ‘dad’,” Radhika said, while speaking to IANS.
“I feel so grateful that I got the opportunity to just stand in front of him and share screen space. I learnt so many things from him as an actor and as a person. Working with him was a big tick on my wish list,” she said.
Irrfan breathed his last in Mumbai on April 29 after battling colon infection. He had been ailing ever since he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour a while back, and had been under medical attention for the same.
In June, Radhika Madan went back to her “Angrezi Medium” days and posted an emotional message for actor Irrfan Khan, who played her father in the movie. While the audience enjoyed watching the film on the small screen on Sunday, Radhika took to social media to post a still from the 2020 movie. The photo shows Irrfan giving Radhika a hug and kiss on her head. She captioned it: “Teri laadki mai (I am your girl).”
