Radhika Madan Biography
Radhika Madan was born on May 1, 1995, and is the daughter of businessman Sujit Madan and painter Neeru Madan. Being of middle-class Punjabi descent, she resided with her parents and older brother Arjun in a small family of four. Born and raised in Delhi, Radhika attended New Delhi’s Delhi Public School. Later, she enlisted in a commerce course at Jesus and Mary College, University of Delhi, in New Delhi.
Since early infancy, Radhika has had a strong passion for dancing. As a consequence, she began taking dance classes in eighth grade. There, she learned several forms of dance, including jazz, hip-hop, and ballet. In addition, she also served as an instructor. Radhika Madan enrolled in a New York dance company so she could become a Dancing sensation. She was on the verge of leaving India when the ‘Meri Aashiqui Tumse hi’ team approached her.
As Radhika was never interested in acting, she initially fled the set in terror. It was particularly challenging for her to portray emotions, particularly weeping. Her character ‘Ishaani’ soon became a ubiquitous name, and she grew accustomed to the attention.
Radhika Madan Career
Radhika Madan launched her career as an actress in 2014 with the television series Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi. The Balaji Telefilms-produced series was based on the British novel Wuthering Heights.

Radhika quit her audition for Laila Majnu for this action-comedy after discovering ‘uniqueness’ in the film.

Anupama Chopra writes, “She captures the natural innocence of a 17-year-old eager to leave her small town and see the world.” Although Radhika’s performance was praised, the film’s box office performance was disappointing.
