R.Madhavan aka Maddy was born on 1st June 1970 to the Tamil couple Ranganathan and Saroja. At the tender age of 18, Madhavan was destined to represent the nation as its cultural ambassador to Canada after his graduation. The adventurous spirit in him goaded him to strive further when as an NCC cadet winning the "Maharashtra Best Cadet" enabled him to make another trip to England. He received his training with the Royal Army, Navy and the Air Force.
 

 To mint his fortune Madhavan initiated a ten-day crash course on Public Speaking course. This not only proved to be an instant hit but also played Cupid for him and his beloved Sarita. Lady Luck smiled and his small stint at the small screen gave him recognition in the long run and paved way for his entry to the celluloid world. Ashley in "Banegi Apni Baat", captain in "Sea Hawks", convict in Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, anchor in "Tol Mol" and the roles in "Saaya" and "A Mouthful Of Sky" are still remembered to-date.


he is an Indian actor, writer, film producer and television host. Madhavan has received a Filmfare Award, an award from the Tamil Nadu State Film Awards alongside recognition and nominations from other organisations. He has been described as one of the few actors in India who is able to achieve pan-Indian appeal, appearing in films from eight different languages.
Madhavan began his acting career with television guest appearances, including a role on the Zee TV prime-time soap opera Banegi Apni Baat in 1996.
 
I Don't Get Paid So Much
And later, as he continues with the conversation, we ask him to give a detailed 'account'. "It's as straight as it could be. I don't get paid so much for my films, no matter how much people say that I am famous, successful and all that," he counters. But don't they say actresses get to wear less clothes, dance a little more, yet get half the amount as compared to the actor... "Well, not in my films, not in my films. In my films, even actors don't get money," he smiles. "It's just that I end up doing films that excite me, and I don't stress so much on the amount later. Anyway, the income I get in South is at par with the income in Bollywood."


Mani Ratnam's Alaipayuthe Madhavan's debut shot him to instant fame and stardom wherein he gave life to the character of a man whose love marriage meets with several problems. Madhavan-Shalini pair gained wide critical acclaim and the film was a major success. Madhavan has portrayed a variety of roles in different genres from romance (Minnale, Priyamana Thozhi), drama (Kannathil Muthamittal), comedy (Nala Damayanti) to action (Run).

Of late he has diversified his attention by acting in Hindi, Bengali and Malayalam films. Maddy made his first appearance as a hero in Hindi movies through Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein, the Hindi remake of Minnale. Madhavan's recent movie Rang De Basanti has gained much audience' applause. With utmost ease he slips into each and every role even if it may be as a prominent regional Indian film actor, a game show host for Sony's "Deal Ya No Deal", a mobile game character or an active PETA campaigner.



In 1997, Madhavan appeared in his first film role as an Indian police officer in Fred Olen Ray's Inferno alongside Don Wilson. His first chance in Indian movies came in the form of Shanti Shanti Shanti, a Kannada film, in which he acted in the second lead role to Abbas, an established actor. However, the film failed to make an impact and went unnoticed. During the period, Hindi film director Vinod Pandey launched Madhavan as a Bollywood hero, with a project titled Lakheli, however the film was abandoned by the producers soon after production began and the film was cancelled.

lines--"Live life to the fullest and relish every moment of our existence."

In 1988, Madhavan was chosen to represent India as its cultural ambassador from Rajaram College, Kolhapur to Canada after his graduation in electronics. At 22, he was awarded the Maharashtra NCC Best Cadet, allowing him to make a trip with seven others as NCC Cadets to England. Because of this honour, he received training with the Royal Army, the Navy and the Air Force, which he previously planned to join.
However he was rejected from the opportunity, as he missed the age cut-off by six months. After he lost out on the place, he began taking courses in public speaking which eventually helped him venture into the film industry. He won the Indian Championship for Public Speaking and was subsequently selected to represent India at the Young Businessmen Conference in Tokyo, Japan in 1992

Rumours and Gossip  
Talking of commitments, it is being said that he has broken the promise he made some time back – of "not kissing an actress" – post his onscreen sensuous liplocking with Vidya Balan. "I never said that I will not kiss a co-actor. Moreover, I have not kissed Kangna in " Tanu Weds Manu", not even in a single scene," he claims. The actor, it was said, has been unhappy with the way Kangna was calling the shots for all publicity campaigns, as he was left alone.

 
 "Kangna was in Bangkok past few days, so it was necessary for her to begin promotions before she takes off, so that she doesn't miss out. It is anyway so boring to give interviews alone, and so much fun when your co-actors are around," sighs the actor, "At times, it all depends on the PR person of the film – he/she decides what should be written about you, and not the actor. Otherwise, tell me, how could it happen that Kangna would decide the title of the film, and rather have it changed according to her convenience.
 
 In the Indian tradition, it's the bride's name first and then the bridegroom's name for a wedding, which is why the film is titled "Tanu Weds Manu", and the news reports said that the film was originally titled "Manu Weds Tanu", and Kangna got it changed!" He also says that publicity gimmicks are required when one is out of budget but still wants to promote his film, "and I don't need that." All right, we believe you. Be rest assured, aal izz well.


I Don't Get Paid So Much

European Biking Adventure
He was passionate for biking since he was a teenager, and is the proud owner of not one, but two high-end bikes. "My dad was also a biker, so I never had to fight with my dad to get me a bike, like all teenage boys have to. But then, I also never misused what I had. I have never had any accident or mishap coz of my passion for biking. In that way, I am responsible," asserts the actor, who is all set to go for a Europe tour by the end of this month, with his close friends, and that too on a bike. As it is an adventurous trip, he ain't going with his family. "I usually give my commitment for only one film a year, so that I can spend time with my family."
