“I think that’s water under the bridge. There is no point in beating a dead horse… You know, it’s so difficult to come up with original stuff, and then there are expectations of a film. See, if it’s a sequel to Avengers or a superhero series, it’s easier because you have a template. But with Tanu Weds Manu, it’s impossible. And I think I am done with it. I don’t want to go back to being Manu now,” Madhavan told YouTuber Jaby Koey.

In another recent interview, Madhavan responded to rumours of the possible remake of his 2001 film Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein, which also starred Dia Mirza and Saif Ali Khan.

“I wish them all the very best. 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,” Madhavan told Pinkvilla recently.

R Madhavan is making his directorial debut with Rocketry: The Nambit Effect, a biopic on the life of Nambi Narayanan, former scientist and aerospace engineer. It also features cameos by Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya.
