In conversation with BT, Madhavan on his POA in Bollywood and the way forward
Tanvi Trivedi (BOMBAY TIMES; March 6, 2012)
R Madhavan, in an informal chat, tells BT about how he makes his presence felt even in multi-starrer films, his choice of B-Town flicks, why February has been a lucky month for him and lots more…
You have worked with the likes of Mani Ratnam, Kamal Haasan, Raju Hirani and actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. Is it a conscious decision to continue working with such biggies? I have done my bit of working with the biggies of Indian cinema. I have gained from working with them. It was a pleasure and a great learning experience. But as a 44-year old actor, don’t you feel I should be coming out of those kind of films and creating a different space for myself ? I want to get out of working in typical commercial Hindi film projects and do roles that will expand my horizons. I need to establish myself in a more challenging space and do roles that I haven’t done before.
You have only done nine films in Bollywood. Why? Whether it is Hindi or films in the south, it is very difficult to find films with quality today. I have done only one film in a year. I feel stories need to be told differently and it takes a long time to choose an exciting subject. I have worked for different genres of films that have a different pitch. Hopefully, that novelty has worked and will work for me. There are a lot of southern remakes in Bollywood today but they are only More >
R Madhavan is in a trouble. A college-going girl has made a habit out of standing outside his building for hours and she has been doing this for the past two weeks now.
The girl insists on meeting him. The society guards did manage to shoo her away earlier but the girl is quite persistent.R Madhavan
A source says, “It all basically started after the promos of his upcoming movie Tanu weds Manu. He plays an eligible NRI bachelor in the movie.”
R Madhavan cannot be contacted, as he is in Kuala Lumpur. But when contacted, his wife Sarita confirmed this and said, “This girl has been regularly visiting the building for the past two weeks and says she want to meet Madhavan at least once. She also gets gifts and flowers for him everyday.
We have told her that Madhavan is travelling and hence she can’t meet him. But she thinks we are lying and does not budge.”

Recall those years when partying hard was the only agenda on your list. Recall those years when staying awake at nights, chatting away with friends became a habit. Recall those years when bunking college and sneaking into movie halls was more exciting than books. Recall those years when you were completely clueless and aimless about the vocation you wanted to pursue once you graduated… That indecisive phase when you were hesitant to take that first big step in life can never be erased from your memory.
WAKE UP SID, directed by debutante Ayan Mukerji, is like revisiting those years that lay at some remote corner of your mind, after you moved on in life.
Actually, WAKE UP SID is a slice of life film. It’s not merely real in concept, but has also been told most realistically, so much so that you can’t help but draw parallels with your life or with someone you know. But what really makes WAKE UP SID most believable is Ranbir Kapoor, who’s mastered the craft at such a young age.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
Verdict? WAKE UP SID mirrors those years with flourish. This one’s a simple story that strikes a chord instantly. Strongly recommended!
WAKE UP SID tells the story of Siddharth aka Sid [Ranbir Kapoor], a lazy, unmotivated slacker from Mumbai whose life undergoes a series of changes after taking his final year college exams. Sid’s world is breezy, carefree and without any true responsibilities.
Sid thrives around his two best More >

Ranbir Kapoor: Sidharth Mehra That’s me! Well, Sidharth Mehra really but everyone calls me Sid. I’m just a regular guy, I guess. I just finished college and have no idea what the heck I’m doing next. No one told me that I had to have a plan, so I never made one! If you ask me, the world would be a much better place if we all just slowed down and learnt to take it easy sometimes. That’s kind of what I’m doing these days… just taking it easy… hanging with my buddies, watching TV, eating, sleeping, dreaming… that sort of thing, you know?
Konkona Sen Sharma: Aisha Bannerjee God, there’s so much to say about Aisha… She’s new to Mumbai, and completely infatuated with the city. She left everyone and everything she knew in Kolkata to go after her dream of becoming a writer for this cool urban magazine called Mumbai Beat. She’s creative, ambitious, focused, driven, brave… phew, basically everything I’m not!
Anupam Kher: Ram Mehra Dad and I have nothing in common, really. He owns a company that manufactures bathroom fittings. Their speciality: these horrific gadgets called Flower Showers! They’re exactly what they sound like-showers that look like flowers. I wish I was kidding, but I’m not. And now, he wants me to join the company! How am I going to get out of this one?
Supriya Pathak: Sarita Mom has three obsessions: Watching TV serials, nagging me, and trying to learn English. I don’t know which one bothers More >
