Actor Madhavan knows a thing or two about two worlds: the world of Tamil films and the world of Hindi films. At ease, the actor balances his career in Kollywood and Bollywood. Madhavan, who debuted as the chocolate-boy hero in ace director Maniratnam’s Alai Payudhae almost a decade back, has been going strong still.
He is presently starring in director Lingusamy’s Vettai and has been paired opposite the sizzling Sameera Reddy. Aarya and Amala Paul are also part of the film’s lead cast. Readers might recall that it was Lingusamy who attempted to successfully change Maddy’s image of a ‘chocolate boy’ by casting him in the action-packed venture Run.
Though Maddy starred in many action films after that, it was only due to Lingusamy’s film that other film-makers thought that Maddy can be signed up in action-flicks too. In order to balance his Hindi and Tamil careers perfectly, Madhavan has decided not to commit himself to doing more than one Tamil and one Hindi film at a time.
“I’m a bit hesitant in agreeing to play stereotypical roles; I feel an actor should try to experiment in each and every film of his. As far as my choice of films are concerned, the script plays the major role and thing else. I also expect that the heroine who is cast against me in film(s) should be one who looks to impress the audience by her performance and just by her glamour quotient,” says Madhavan.
Point noted, Sir!
