R Madhavan has said that he wants to do more age appropriate romance films.”Well, Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein and Tanu Weds Manu had great directors also… romance is something I enjoy doing, but I have to do age appropriate romance right now. I am no more the ‘chocolate boy’ still, romance is always going to be a part of my life.”
Madhavan also said that there was no chance of him playing a ‘chocolate boy’ onscreen.”I don’t feel it at all as much as people urging and egging me to do. I don’t want to make a fool of myself. I don’t think there’s anymore chocolate boy left in me… Like if I do the roles on the screen that border on romance it will be age appropriate,” Madhavan said.
The actor believes that he still has a ‘long way to go’ when it comes to his movie career. “No, I have not achieved it all by any standards. I have a long way to go. But yeah, it feels good to have a strong foothold in Hindi as well as the south market because it gives me a choice of doing more subjects and being a part of bigger films or subjects that I feel completely in sync with as opposed to doing a film just because I need to be working,” he said.
Madhavan feels that the struggle to cater to constantly evolving audiences helps him better his craft. “I struggle on many fronts on having to move to a different level, having to cater to constantly evolving audiences… So that struggle is there and I hope it is always a part of my life because that keeps me going,” he said.
His next is Chanda Mama Door Ke, a space thriller in which he shares screenspace with Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor said:
“I am looking forward to work with Sushant Singh Rajput and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. I have not worked with them before and I am also very excited to working with Sanjay Puran Singh (director). He is extremely talented and we get on like a house on fire,” said the actor.
Madhavan is confident that the film will turn out to be a milestone in his career.
