In 1992, actress Madhoo became a household name when she starred in Mani Ratnam’s critically-acclaimed ‘Roja’ and received rave reviews for her act. In it, she was paired opposite Arvind Swami and impressed fans courtesy her crackling chemistry with her on screen lover. During a recent interaction with a leading daily, Madhoo revisited her ‘Roja’ days and said that she would love to work with Mani Ratnam again. She went on to add that she is still in touch with the filmmaker as well as Swami.
“I occasionally text Mani sir because I want to constantly remind him that I’m still around and that I want to work with him. It’s my dream to work with him again and I’ve never kept that a secret. I’m in touch with so many directors and actors; I party with them and everybody else is a friend. The only person to whom I say that I’m waiting to be cast by, is Mani sir. I also follow Arvind Swami’s work. I saw Thani Oruvan in which he played the villain and got him right back in the top of the league,” added Madhoo.
Interestingly, she has not signed a single Tamil film in the past four years. Explaining her absence, Madhoo said that she gets a lot of offers but she wants to work with only certain actors/production houses.
“I get a lot of offers, but they don’t tempt me. I have this desire to work with certain production houses and certain actors,” she added.
Well, we wish Madhoo the very best and hope that she makes a comeback soon.
