Madhavan is currently in a cruise shooting for his Tamil film with Kamal Hassan and Trisha. In the meanwhile, there are films which are waiting to kick start though. While there are Tamil assignments down South, up North there is an untitled film with T-Series as the producers which is on the anvil. Starring Sunny Deol and Kangna as the other lead actors, this film would be directed by Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao of LUCKY - NO TIME FOR LOVE (Salman Khan, Sneha Ullal) fame.
"Yeah, this is a new film which I have signed recently though it is still to go on floors. Let's see how the shooting schedule turns out to be", says Madhavan who was earlier also in news after he signed FREEDOM with Sanjay Dutt. What's happening to the film which would be directed by Vivek Agnihotri (DHAN DHAN DHAN GOAL, CHOCOLATE)?
"Well, it is a period film and Vivek is taking time to put it all together", says Madhavan, "It is good though because FREEDOM is a really big project. For us actors, it requires transformation from being a youngster to someone who is a 60 years old man. The kind of pre-production which the film requires is maddening."
Meanwhile, has he ever sat down and reflected on the success called 3 IDIOTS, something which continues to stay in news even six months after the release. When does Madhavan think that his life would return to normalcy, courtesy all the adulation which till date is continuing to come the way of everyone associated with the film?
"Honestly speaking, I am not affected much by the success of my films, even if they are really huge", he smiles, "I have had numerous successes down South. Also, in Bollywood I have had successful films like RANG DE BASANTI and GURU. These films did spectacularly well. This is why it has not at all been a matter of coming back to normalcy. I have always felt pretty normal."
