Call it coincidence or Madhavan's fascination to essay roles in uniform, but Madhavan's upcoming film SIKANDAR will actually be the third time he's essaying a role in a uniform.
Madhavan played a Naval officer very early in his career in a TV serial 'Sea Hawk'. He then played an Air Force officer in RANG DE BASANTI and this time around he is playing an Army Officer in SIKANDAR.
''Yes it uncanny how I have played so many roles in the uniform. It must be because when I was young I wanted to grow up to become an Air Force Officer, but didn't qualify because of my age. So now I end up fulfilling my wish in the films that I act in,' admits Madhavan.
Now, the only uniform role left for Madhavan to play on screen is that of a Police officer. ''Yes, I guess I am just left to do a role of a Police Officer now and I am waiting for the right role, because I have a lot of admiration for our Police Officers and I do not want to caricaturize it.'
