Tanu Weds Manu Returns was also as successful as the the first part and Madhavan was aware that he would be overshadowed by Kangana who plays a double role in the movie! But the actor’s performance stood apart and he made his presence felt through out the movie! We quite loved him in this one!

Irudhi Suttru opened to great reviews and a lot has been spoken about his look in the film which comes from working out in the gym over a period of a year and a half. “If you look the part, then people don’t feel cheated so my conscious decision was to work out long, slow and hard to achieve the look. I cannot be playing the role of a soldier and look podgy! I realized how important it is to look the part that you are playing.” With this role, he has shed his image of the quintessential lover-boy and molded himself to the character of a buff boxer. Ask him if this is the route he wishes to follow and he laughs, “No, this is not going to be my look forever. If I want to look convincing as a lover boy in my next movie, I cannot be so beefed up! On a lighter note, I consider my looks in a movie to be uber important so if in the next movie, I am playing a clown, you can expect me to be in full form clown avatar!”

This is the first time Maddy has changed so much physically for one role and it left all of his fans surprised. His wife, his first fan, and critic seems to have loved his look in the film. “Sarita absolutely loved it. She felt that this is the best I have ever looked at any film of mine. She also said that after the movie, women were going to go nuts over me, which is a little exaggerated if you ask me!” Tell him that his female fan following never really came down and he enthusiastically quips, “That is a huge motivation for me to look good at all times and perform to my best of abilities. At 45, to think that I can actually pull off the image is quite consoling!”
