She growls when she answers this question: Sanya [Malhotra] is her “bestie”, as she has declared on IG, while Angrezi Medium co-star Kareena Kapoor is… well ‘the Kareena Kapoor’! Radhika is the quintessential millennial, who is punny with her Instagram captions and makes meme spoof-videos with her dog. “My favourite filter on Instagram is Paris. I’m lazy to swipe for more,” she laughs

List three things not many people know about you.

I’m a vegan, I’m a big Bollywood buff and I wanted to be a choreographer, not an actor.

A self-discovery during the lockdown...?

Realising what is actually important to me and being grateful for little things.

One dream you constantly saw while growing up?

I wanted to learn tap, watch Broadway and travel the world!

How do you best remember your co-star Irrfan Khan from Angrezi Medium?

When I met him for the first time, I addressed him as ‘papa’ and he started laughing and said: “Acha, aap hain (Oh It’s you)!”
