Madhavan on half a dozen films announced with him

R Madhavan

The going has been good for Madhavan who would be seen in Teen Patti this week. 2009 started off well with 13 B and ended on a brilliant note with 3 Idiots turning out to be biggest money spinner of all times. Looking at a fresher set of films in the coming months, most notably being Tanu Weds Manu and Freedom, Madhavan also opens up on half a dozen films that were announced at one point of time with his name in the credits. These were Aap Ke Liye Hum, Basra, Sunglass, Game On, Alibaug and Deewana.

Here is a blow by blow account of each of these films, right from the horse’s mouth.

Sunglass [Director: Rituparno Ghosh, co-stars: Konkona Sen Sharma, Naseruddin Shah, Jaya Bachchan, Raima Sen]

“Yes, I have completed Sunglass quite some time back but it’s up to the producers to release it. Only they can answer the question around the delay.

Basra [Director: Navdeep Singh]

“I was supposed to do Basra with director Navdeep Singh and co-star Akshaye Khanna. However, things didn’t materialise between producer and the director. Things changed later and they needed my dates from November-February. That didn’t work for me and I had to opt out.”

Aap Ke Liye Hum [Director: Revathi, co-stars: Jaya Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Vidya Malvade]

“I was getting a chance to work with Jayaji (Bachchan) in this film and was quite thrilled about it. In fact I had also shot for a couple of days but then the director fell ill and later there were certain pre-production issues. Again, all the dates were haywire. Now if the film moves ahead, I may continue working in it. So I am a little unsure about it’s progress.”

Alibaug [Director: Sanjay Dutt]

“I was supposed to work in it at the time when Mr. Sanjay Dutt was the central protagonist. Then there were certain problems between him and Sanjay Gupta and the film was delayed by 8 months. Later when the film started again, I didn’t have spare dates myself.”

Game On [Director: Nupur Ashtana, co-star – Tabu]

“This film is not happening at all.”

Deewana [Director: Not known, co-star Amrita Arora]

“This film is not happening at all.”
