Speculations were rife that Sara was approached for the role of Irrfan’s daughter in the film but Radhika’s performance during the audition replaced the former. In her latest interview with Mid-Day, the actor opened up on the same news reports and mentioned that all she did was she auditioned for a film she really wanted to be a part. Radhika said she doesn’t know if Sara was a part of the film or not but she knows that she always audition for films and she will continue doing the same. “I auditioned for this film, and I will continue to audition for movies that catch my attention. I have no idea about Sara or the backstory of the film’s casting,” said Radhika. Also Read - Radhika Madan: Clothes Don't Define us, It’s Woman's Call on What She Chooses to Wear

She said she never believed herself until the day she saw the credits of the trailer with her name written alongside Irrfan’s. “Until the day I saw the trailer credits, I couldn’t believe I had done a film with Irrfan sir!,” said Radhika.
