MUMBAI: R Madhavan predominantly appears in Tamil and Hindi films. Madhavan has won four Filmfare Awards South and three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards.
He has been described as one of the few actors in India who is able to achieve pan-Indian appeal, having appeared in films from seven different languages.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan is well known for his unique hosting skills on award shows. He is often seen roasting the who’s who of the Indian film industry.
In an old Filmfare award ceremony, Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan made some funny assumptions about what R in R. Madhavan stands for. King Khan then “Rated?, Real?,” asks SRK. “Really Talented?,” piles on Saif. The actor then politely answered “Ranganathan.” The fun banter did not stop there.
Towards the end of the conversation, Shah Rukh Khan asked R Madhavan “Everybody has to insult us tonight. Would like to insult us in Tamil?” Madhavan retorted, “Go away, you fools (in Tamil).” Thanks to their heir great sense of humour, SRK and Saif took that insult in the right spirit and laughed it off.
Have a look.
The actor recently featured in Decoupled, a story abour a misanthropic writer and his startup-founder wife juggling their divorce with the absurdities and annoyances of life in their affluent world.
