That's a significant change from the saas-bahu stories on television: a saas operating a drug gang with her bahus and beti. Radhika Madan, who oversaw a daily soap opera in prime time until 2016, would know. The actor is now immersed in Homi Adajania's bizarre universe of Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo.

It was a no-brainer to reunite with the filmmaker three years after Angrezi Medium (2020). Talking about the same, Radhika told Midday that Homi had informed her about this character when Angrezi Medium was being filmed. She enjoyed working with him on the movie so much that she wanted to do it again. He has more faith in her than she does, and he receives something from her that not even she is aware of. Radhika had no clue how she would play Shanta when she first read about her. At night, she had trouble sleeping. Therefore, she knew she had to be a part of it.

The series follows a string of diverse endeavours by Radhika, including Kuttey, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, and her feature debut, Pataakha. The actor, who enjoyed her time on television with Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi from 2014 to 2016, recalls how her desire to be creative led her to try her luck in the film industry.

One day, she was caught up in a scenario. The actor was attempting to make a point about the history of her character as her director paced up and down. He became irate and said that they would discuss one scene for three days on the day they shot a movie. This episode must be televised tonight, so shoot it then. That prompted her to venture into the world of film. Radhika would still be doing TV today if that event hadn't happened.

Making people realise why gratifying her acting side was more vital than her fame wasn't simple. She was informed by the people that she has such a terrific performance. Why does she want to move from television to films? The actor said that she still owes television even though she now relishes playing the lead in films. TV helped her find her calling, and she never looks down on it.
