Radhika Madan made her debut with Vishal Bharadwajs Pataakha and was seen in Homi Adajanias Angrezi Medium recently. The film had to be pulled out of theaters due to the lockdnwn to combat the spread of COVID--19. Now the movie is available on the OTT platform. And the actress is getting rave reviews for her performance. This has excited her. She says she wants to explore new sides to her on screen. The journey has just started for this newcomer. And she's gung ho about the journey ahead.

How are you staying positive in this difficult hour with so much negativity around?

Its important to take care of your mental health as well as your physical health. What we don't realise is that our immunity is related to our mental health. Of course, we should be aware about whats happening around. But I also keep myself disconnected. I make sure that I learn something everyday. I am thankful for things that I have like food, health... I just keeping myself busy learning something everyday. Thats how I keep myself on the positive side.

What are you enjoying the most about this quarantine period ?

We keep saying we dont have time. Now we have the time, still we dont do the stuff we want to do. I always said that I wanted to learn tap dancing, I'm learning it online. I'm learning to play the piano. I'm cooking, writing, reading and doing yoga.

One movie or show, you've been binge watching all day at home.

I saw Parasite. And now Angrezi Medium is out, I was watching it with my house help yesterday.

If this lockdown extends, who are the two people you'd want by your side?

I'd want to meet my family. I want to just hug my parents. I'm here and my parents are in Delhi. As soon as the lockdown is over, I will go to meet them.

What have you learnt from this critical period?

I've learnt to just be thankful for the things I have. We want money... people behave as if they have all the power in the world. At the end of the day, it just comes down to washing your hands and sitting at home. No matter how rich or powerful you are. Everybody is at home doing nothing, just making sure they 're eating well and washing their hands. It makes you think about a lot of things. This time teaches you to realise the value of your family and friends.

Which is the one book/webseries/ film, you'd like to recommend to your fans?

I'm reading The Goose Is Out by Osho. Its a lovely book.

With Angrezi Medium going on digital platform, what kind of response are you expecting from the film?

Angrezi had released and unfortunately the lockdown happened. The film is far bigger than our personal interest in it. At the end of the day, it all comes down to why you make a film, right? You make a film to entertain the audience. So our main motto was not just to release it in theatres... its about entertaining the people.Thats the reason we released it digitally. We want people to see the film with their family. We just want to put a smile on their faces The response I am getting is humbling. Its positive and so encouraging.

What kinds of roles/scripts are you looking forward to do in the near future.

I just want to do whatever excites me. I dont want to live the same character twice. Thats the reason Angrezi was different from Patakha. Shiddat is going to be different from Angrezi. I just want to explore different shades of me.

Tell me something about your next film Shiddat with Sunny Kaushal.

Its a love story and I am a swimmer in it. Its gonna be different from whatever I have done before.

Lastly, what do you think lies in store for Bollywood, post the novel coronavirus pandemic?

I cant say whats going to happen after the pandemic. But I hope we will realise the value of the important things in our lives. And we get out of this as better people, more aware about things.
