Though in Bollywood language, he and Neetu Chandra play a hero and a heroine respectively in 13B, Madhavan insists that the film doesn't tell a story about this couple. Instead it is a film about an entire family though the story is centered on two characters - a TV and himself. In fact he goes on to add that the hero of the film could well be the television set that creates havoc in their life.

''The whole story of 13B is about this TV and me. The movie revolves around a family where Poonam Dhillon, who plays my mother, is as important as Neetu who plays my wife. Still, we can't deviate the attention of the viewer by stating that the film is about me and Neetu where we become hero and heroine. Instead, it's the TV that holds center-stage in the film's narrative'', says Madhavan who was last seen on the big screen in MUMBAI MERI JAAN.

With Poonam Dhillon being just 8 years elder to him in real life, one can't help but smile at their on-screen pairing as mother-son. ''Well, ours is a good looking family'', he quips.

Coming to Neetu Chandra, since Maddy is selective about his Bollywood outings, didn't he have any apprehensions of working with an actress who was just four films old in the industry?

''As I said, the film is not about a hero and a heroine and in this aspect, Neetu is just apt. It there is a top heroine in a project then audience starts expecting a romantic outing with 'naach-gaana' etc. Especially in South, it becomes a double edged sword because there have been cases when viewers have even walked out of theaters when things do not go as per their expectations. However, with this pairing we could afford to go low-key. Neetu is perfect for the role'', reasons Madhavan.
