Actor R Madhavan and Dia Mirza’s romantic film Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, was a remake of Gautham’s Tamil film Minnale, which also starred Madhavan. The film had a loyal fan base, emerging as a cult classic over the years. In a recent development to the possibility of a remake happening for the film, R Madhavan commented. A report on hindustantimes.com talked about it and we take reference from that story for our write up here.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, R Madhavan at first wished the team attempting to remake it ‘all the very best’. Reacting to the remake, he said, “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.”
Speaking about himself, the actor 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.”
Well, this is an interesting conversation indeed!!
