Madhavan admires Ranbir Kapoor's work

Method actor

Praising the “natural acting” talent of the young guns of Bollywood, R Madhavan says he is particularly enthralled to see how Ranbir Kapoor has built his career.

The 44-year-old actor is back on the big screen with Tanu Weds Manu Returns after a sabbatical of three years and he said his break was important as he utilised the time to understand the new-age methods of acting.

“There has been a dramatic change in filmmaking and acting in movies. I have learnt that during my break. Everyone is living ahead of time... Ranbir Kapoor is one of those guys. He is so comfortable in his shoes. He has the younger generation wanting to be like him. It is very rare to see something like that,” Madhavan told PTI.
“Ranbir, Ranveer Singh are pushing the envelope and even actresses like Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra are doing different movies, which is now testimony of the fact that merely having good looks is not enough. You have to be extraordinary actors,” he added.

In Aanand L Rai’s Tanu Weds Manu Returns, which is the sequel to 2011 hit Tanu Weds Manu, Madhavan will be seen reprising the role of Manu Sharma.

While preparing for the role, Madhavan stayed away from his family and the actor said he did that so he could completely immerse himself in the character.

“That was part of the pre­paration. It was a very tough role for me. When an actor is given no or less dialogues and he still has to contribute as the main protagonist of the film,
it gets difficult. So, you have to be immersed in the character to make it worthy of it,” the
actor said.

Madhavan’s next release is sports drama Saala Kha­doos, in which he plays a boxing coach.
