"I think it’s foolishness, and that’s my opinion. I wouldn’t want to touch that. I wouldn’t do it as a producer. I wish them all the very best from the bottom of my heart, I do. And I hope they surprise because nothing in the industry can actually be predicted, but it has a lot of memories attached to it for a lot of people. For the audiences, it is more than a movie. It is sort of an anthem in some ways. It’s like almost saying that 15 years from now you want to remake 3 Idiots. I don’t think it's a sensible… let me just put it again - I think it's a brave decision."

Talking about himself, Madhavan said,

"I am not the kind of guy who looks back often and kind of evaluates one's life about what has happened. I am actually a very live-in-the-moment kind of a guy. So I am grateful that I have had the ability with my work and the love of the public, to do what I want to, and when I want to - that freedom being a rarity. But I don’t gloat over it. I am just grateful for it."

R Madhavan is all geared up for the theatrical release of his directorial debut, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.

"Mr. Narayanan was not disappointed." Nambi is a former ISRO scientist and aerospace engineer who was caught in a spy scandal's throes and falsely accused of espionage. "Rocketry: The Nambi Effect," his biopic, will be released in theaters on July 1, 2022.
