Madhavan on why he plays a villain in a Telugu film

Madhavan on why he plays a villain in a Telugu film


Mumbai, Nov 3 : The new Telugu release Savyasachi has surprised Andhra and Telanganas audiences with the strong presence of Tamil cinemas iconic actor R Madhavan.

Madhavan has so far done only Tamil and Hindi film so what prompted him to do a Telugu film and that too in a negative role?

The role, what else? It was a fabulous role. Though my character enters the picture mid-way, my introduction into the plot had me hooked. And the enthusiasm that I felt in Andhra Pradesh when I went there to finalise the Telugu version of my biopic on the space scientist Nambi Naraynan, clinched the matter. I was told I had no idea about my fan-following in Andhra. Now I do, laughs Madhavan.

His entry into the film is greeted with a loud applause in Andhra.

Madhavan is pleasantly surprised, I had no idea I'd be received so well in my first Telugu film. Now of course there is 'Rocketry The Nambi' Effect where I will be speaking my own lines in Telugu for the first time. I learnt the language for my character in 'Savyasachi' . But they had to dub my voice finally. But for the Nambi bio-pic I will be speaking Telugu in my own voice.

Madhavan says he enjoyed his first stint in Telugu cinema. I had never spoken in Telugu and I had never played a negative character. It was a new experience for me. I am certainly open to doing more Telugu films.
