R Madhavan Refused 3 Idiots Remake In Tamil, Here’s Why

During a recent event, R Madhavan reveals that he was offered 3 Idiots remake in Tamil. He also told the reason behind refusing the offer.

R Madhavan is a phenomenal actor. Over the years, he has continued to be a heartthrob. From Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein to Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, his fan following and the respect for him in the hearts of his fans have only increased. Be it playing a cop in Vikram Vedha or a college boy in 3 Idiots or a scientist in Rocketry, R Madhavan has played a variety in each of his films. He doesn’t like repeating his roles and that’s one reason why he has maintained his mark in the industry for over two decades.

R Madhavan revealed that he refused to do 3 Idiots remake in Tamil. 3 Idiots is a Hindi movie directed by Rajkumar Hirani. It features Aamir Khan, R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani and Mona Singh. It was a blockbuster film of the year 2009 and is considered to be among the greatest Bollywood movies ever made. After the record-breaking success of 3 Idiots, R Madhavan was offered to do its Tamil remake.

Even though R Madhavan is a superstar in Tamil cinema, he refused to do it. Citing the reason behind his decision, he said during an event, “I don’t remake my films. Even they wanted me to do 3 Idiots remake in Tamil, I didn’t do it because it gets difficult for me. As an actor when I do a scene for the first time, it itself is very difficult to give it your life and soul and therefore, recreating the same is impossible for me. I don’t think I’ll do remakes of anybody’s film, not even mine because comparisons happen and the whole fun of doing a film goes away. I don’t want to do remakes.”

R Madhavan was recently seen in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. Apart from featuring as the lead actor, R Madhavan also wrote, directed and produced this film. It was released in Tamil, Hindi and English languages. He will be next seen in Hindi movie Dhokha- Round D Corner. It also features Khushalii Kumar, Aparshakti Khurana and Darshan Kumaar. It is directed by Kookie Gulati and produced by Bhushan Kumar.
