Madhavan was not seen in Tamil films after his hit movie Vettai. The actor kept himself busy in Bollywood. Now, the time has come for him to make a comeback to the Kollywood. Yes, he is returning with an untitled movie directed by Sudha Kongara, a former associate of maverick filmmaker Mani Ratnam, of Drohi fame.
The multilingual actor will be playing the role of a retired boxer in the flick. His look in the film was witnessed by media when he attended the Centenary function of Indian cinema recently. With fully grown hairs and a beard, Maddy stunned the onlookers.
For the role in the yet-to-be-titled movie, Madhavan has underwent a rigorous training in the US. Some experts from the Hollywood have helped him. Maddy also hit the gym to get the chiselled body for his role in the forthcoming Tamil movie.
"When I got into the boxing ring for the first time, I didn't last for even a minute. Now, I have a renewed sense of respect for boxers. It's the most physically challenging role I have done. I've spent most of my time in the gym trying to look the part," the Mumbai Mirror quoted Madhavan as saying.
The forthcoming project is expected to take off in December.
