Maddy for his fans, Madhavan began spreading his magic in Tamil filmdom with Mani Ratnam’s Alaipayuthey.

He played the role of Karthik, who falls in love with a medical student, Shakthi (Shalini), woos her and the two get married secretly.

Madhavan became a heart throb among women. His next film Minnale only cemented his image as the lover boy.
