Madhavan’s next one is Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The film will be released on July 1. He has been busy promoting the film and also talked about his older films during several interviews. In an interview, R Madhavan was asked if there was a possibility that he would return as Manu in another Tanu Weds Manu movie. He was seen opposite Kangana Ranaut in the 2011 film Tanu Weds Manu and later in Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Madhavan said he was “done” with the franchise, adding that it was “water under the bridge”.
“I think that’s water under the bridge. There’s no point pulling a dead horse… You know, it’s so hard to come up with original stuff, and then there’s expectations of a movie. Look, whether it’s an Avengers sequel or a superhero series, it’s easier because you have a template. But with Tanu Weds Manu that is impossible. And I think I’m done with it. I don’t want to be Manu anymore,” Madhavan told YouTuber Jaby Koey.
In another recent interview, Madhavan responded to rumors of the possible remake of his 2001 film Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein, which also featured Dia Mirza and Saif Ali Khan†
“I wish them all the best. I think it’s folly, and that’s my opinion. I wouldn’t want to touch that. I wouldn’t do it as a producer. I wish them all the very best from the bottom of my heart, I do. And I hope they surprise because nothing in the industry can actually be predicted, but there are a lot of memories associated with it for many people,” Madhavan recently told Pinkvilla.
R Madhavan makes his directorial debut with Rocketry: The Nambit Effect, a biopic about the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer. It also includes cameos from Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya.
