I always addressed Irrfan Khan as papa or dad: Radhika Madan

Mumbai: 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 learned 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.
