Madhavan plays cop in Lingusamys Vettai


Actor Madhavan, who has been around for a decade now, has always been seen as a chocolate lover boy and has rarely attempted his hands in roles that have negative shades to it. In this regard, his role in Kamal’s ‘Manmadhan Ambu’ was quite a revelation indeed. Now the actor is back in Kollywood and is working with director Lingusamy in ‘Vettai’.

Maddy sure knows a thing or two about balancing his Bollywood and Kollywood careers perfectly. His latest Hindi film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ opposite Kangna Ranaut has been declared a super-hit. Probably for the first time in his career, he plays a cop in ‘Vettai’, which also has Aarya and Sameera Reddy as his co-stars. Incidentally, it was Lingusamy who gave Madhavan his first-ever action film in ‘Run’, which ran successfully a few years back.

“The cop role didn’t necessitate any additional training on may part. I can’t reveal much about the role at this juncture,” says Maddy who has just completed a schedule of shooting in Karaikudi for ‘Vettai’. Maddy is surprised about Lingusamy’s dedication to his work and opines that it was nice to come across a director who treated his profession with respect and regard even after so many years and tasting many successes.

Maddy also confirmed that he would be starring in the Tamil remake of ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ but says he’s unaware of who would be his heroine. Reports say that Trisha might be roped in to play the lead opposite Madhavan. “The script is an amazing one and the story is a practical one which would appeal to all sections of the masses in our country,” says Maddy and adds that “Trisha is an amazing actress who has proved that she can take on and do justice any kind of role!”
