With that smile and dreamy eyes, R. Madhavan is one of the most charming actors in the country whom millennials grew up swooning over. It’s easy to spot his fans — just play a track from Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein or Alaipayuthe! After a career of close to three decades with noteworthy films in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada, Ranganathan Madhavan turned director with Rocketry: The Nambi Effect in 2022. Madhavan is currently shooting in Chennai for his next project, Test, along with Nayanthara and Siddharth. As he cut his 53rd birthday cake today, we scrolled through his Instagram and picked our favourite moments.
At the recently concluded IIFA Awards in Abu Dhabi, Madhavan bagged the Best Director award for Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. He posed with his champion swimmer son Vedaant with the award in his hand. The father-son duo looked dapper in Varoin Marwah’s design.
Here’s a mustachioed Madhavan with his hair trimmed and a hint of salt-and-pepper beard, shooting for his next project.
Sporting glasses and a black shirt, Madhavan posted a ‘vibe check’ image. Well, we love the beard, the well-set wavy hair and that intense look.
Madhavan shared his cool avatar as ‘Pablo Chocobar’ in beard, cap and jacket, holding a cigar. His industry colleagues — Aparshakti Khurana, Bipasha Basu and Aahana Kumra — dropped emojis.
We love that he’s an avid biker as well. Madhavan, who loves to go on rides with his family and friends, shows off his ‘stallion’.
