When Madhavan’s wife supported him after the failure of Saala Khadoos | Bollywood

by Joe Bourn

In the last decade, R Madhavan has become a producer and director. The actor, who turns 53 on June 1, shared in an old interview how he faced tough times while producing the bilingual film Saala Khadoos. He couldn’t take his family on vacation, but his wife Sarita Birje supported him throughout, even telling their son Vedaant Madhavan that they should stay home for his studies.

The actor spent two years in Saala Khadoos, which was released in Tamil as Irudhi Suttru. But he had faced a lot of trouble getting investors to join the project as they were confident about the female director, Sudha Kongara, and the film’s star, newcomer Ritika Singh, who was a former mixed martial artist. Eventually, he tapped 3 Idiots director Rajkumar Hirani to help produce the Hindi version. When he had a hard time, Sarita told him that it would be fine even if they had to move to a smaller place.

How wife Sarita supported him

In a 2016 interview with Indian Express, he shared how Sarita supported him during the making of Saala Khadoos. He said, “My wife supported me in those days. She told me that it wouldn’t matter even if we went back to that one-bedroom apartment in Mumbai where we started. I saw my wife telling our son that we can’t go on vacation because he has to study but the truth was that I had no money as I had put everything into the film.”

Recent work by Madhavan

Madhavan was last seen in the film Dhokha: Round D Corner opposite Khushali Kumar, Aparshakti Khurana and Darshan Kumar. He made his directorial debut with the biopic Rocketry: The Nambi Effect in which he played scientist Nambi Narayanan. The film was released in Tamil, Hindi and English last year. Suriya had a cameo in the Tamil version, while Shah Rukh Khan had a cameo in Hindi and English.

The actor and his wife Sarita shifted their base to Dubai as their son Vedaant could train there. Vedaant, who is a swimmer, has represented India in many competitive events and won medals.
