Mumbai: Danseuse Radhika Madan is making an entry as an actor with Ekta Kapoor’s new TV show, Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi. Radhika, who hails from Delhi, was spotted by Ekta during a dance recital.
“Ekta is very sweet and when she spoke to me (about this show), it was like a dream come true. She saw one of my performances and called me to Mumbai to audition. Initially, I didn’t think I would be selected, because I haven’t acted before, but I still went ahead. But just as I was stepping out of the audition, I was told that I’d got the role. It was a huge surprise!” Radhika recounts.
Talking about the show, Radhika says, “It’s a love story and I am really working hard to fit in on the show as an actress. I’m very comfortable with Shakti Arora, who is the lead actor. What I’ve seen with the cast members is that they know how to switch into their characters while the shot is on, and immediately get back to normal once it’s done. I’m taking a little time to do that. Gauri Pradhan helps me out sometimes.”
Before Ekta’s show came her way, Radhika was supposed to head to New York for a dance workshop in August. But, she has cancelled her tickets now after getting the show.
Radhika is still continuing with her college education. “I was in the first year of college when I got the offer from Ekta. I’m completing my studies via a correspondence course now,” she says....
