Acting in the silver screen fore than two decades, R Madhavan is definitely favorite to many of us. In fact, he has been the teenage heart-throb for many teenagers. When he appears in the dress of Indian pilot for Rang De Basanti, we were quite impressed with his smarty look. Now, we are going to see him in a sci-fi movie, Chanda Mama Door Ke where he will appear as a pilot.
It has been heard that Chanda Mama Door Ke is going to be Bollywood’s first space adventure movie where Sushant Singh Rajput will play the lead role. The movie is also starred by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Here, Sushant will play the role of an astronaut where Madhavan will play the role of an Air Force pilot. Maddy revealed his excitement about this film saying, “I can’t wait to see this film with my son. I’m sure he’ll be proud of me. It’s such an awesome story and a fantastic team… it’s cutting-edge.”
For this film, Sushant has been learning flying lesson. Therefore, it is expected that Madhavan is also prepping himself for this film. While asked, the actor said, “This role will definitely require much prepping as we are doing it with a lot of authenticity.” He also added that he is not taking any particular lesson as they are all working on the simulators.
Apart from his experience in performing as a pilot in Rang De Basanti, Madhavan added, “I myself have a defense background as I have trained for the NCC (National Cadet Corps). And, having done RDB and the serial Sea Hawks, I know the basics.”
It has been also revealed that for performing the roles in his upcoming movies, Maddy has lost massive weight (around 11 kg in muscle). At present, he has seven films including three Hindi and four South films on his hand and in most of those movies, he is required to look lean and mean.
