While talking about R Madhavan’s films and career, how can one forget to mention Tanu Weds Manu? The movie released in 2011 was widely loved by the audience, and its “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” (released in 2015) did not surpass the success of the original. R Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut’s chemistry in the movie was widely loved by all. So, in a recent interview, R Madhavan was asked if there are opportunities to bring another movie to the Tanu Weds Manu franchise.
The actor stated that there was no point in beating the dead horse and added that he had “finished” the franchise. He has made it clear that he does not want to return to the screen like Manu. “I guess that’s the water under the bridge. There’s no point in overcoming a dead horse… You know, it’s very hard to come up with original stuff, and then there are expectations for a movie. Look, if it’s a sequel to Avengers or a superhero series, it’s easier because you have Template.But with Tanu Weds Manu it’s impossible.And I think I’m done with it.R Madhavan told YouTuber Gaby Koy as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Before that, in another interview, Madhavan also responded to rumors about the remake of his 2001 film Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein. “I wish them all the best. I think it’s crap, and that’s my opinion. I don’t want to get into it. I wouldn’t do it as a producer. I wish them all the best from the bottom of my heart, I do. And I hope they’re surprised, because nothing in the industry really can be expected, But it has a lot of memories attached to it for many people,” Madhavan told Vila Bank.
On the work front, Madhavan is preparing for the release of Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The film is autobiographical and is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, an ISRO scientist. The movie will be released in theaters tomorrow, July 1st.
