Tamil-Hindi superstar Madhavan thought he would quietly turn 50 on June 1 during the lockdown when everything was shut down. Little did he know! “I thought it would be a quiet birthday during this lockdown. But to my surprise I was inundated with birthday wishes. It’s been a huge emotional rollercoaster ride for me. But totally in a happy positive way,” says Maddy.
Fans sent Madhavan videos from all across the world. “I’ve never experienced such a collective surge of love before. But the biggest surprise was the 90-minute video put together by my wife Sarita and my son Vedant. It left me simply overwhelmed. Really, I couldn’t ask for more.”
Since his birthday Madhavan has been diligently trying to reply to every birthday message. “And I still have around 800 messages to reply to.. It’s been really crazy. And that’s a good thing, I guess.”
Last year for his birthday Madhavan was in Belgrade without his family, far from home. “So this year I guess I am happier at 50 than I was at 49,” quips the actor who has done it all from television to Mani Ratnam.
