It is no secret that R Madhavan is one of the most popular names in Tamil cinema today. During his illustrious career, he has slowly but surely carved a niche for himself thanks to his stellar performances and of course charming onscreen personality.
During an interview with a leading news agency, Madhavan revealed that he is happy being an actor and does not need a political label to serve the society. “I am not politically inclined. I am an actor and it is my job. I will continue to do good in whatever form I can. I don’t need endorsement to do good for the society and I am very clear about it,” he said.
Asked about the political debut of the two superstars – Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, Madhavan said, “They are starting now… I feel whatever is better for the state and country, they are most welcome. If your intention is to serve people, then it’s good… I am happy they have taken this step.”
On the work front, Madhavan is all set to team up with ‘Naiyyaandi’ director Sarkunam for a highly ambitious action-packed action-drama that will appeal to kids. To be presented by ‘Orange Mittai’ producer Ganesh, it will be shot in exotic locales like Thailand and Mongolia and is going to be a magnum opus of sorts. Talking about the film, Sarkunam said that it will be a family entertainer and will go on the floors this June.
The actor is also excited about Breathe, an eight-episode psychological thriller that explores the lives of ordinary people faced with extraordinary circumstances. The story of Breathe also has an element of organ donation.
Talking about the same, he said, “I think organ donation is a great thing. When you know that your one step is saving five lives, it should be encouraged. At the same time, there is a misconception about organ donation that the body might get distorted and all, but in the show, we have shown an insight of organ donation.’’
“Having said that, our show is not to propagate organ donation. It is a thriller and it is a good story,’’ he added.
It will go live on January 26 in three languages – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Madhavan was last seen in Vikram Vedha which hit screens in 2017 and did well at the box office.
