‘Haven’t shown what am capable of’
Bollywood actor R Madhavan, who is basking in the box-office success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns, has managed to carve a niche for himself both in Kollywood and Bollywood, but feels that he has still not shown his real potential to Hindi filmmakers.
“I haven’t shown them (Bollywood filmmakers) what I am capable of. I took a break for three years from work and then I did Tanu Weds Manu Returns and upon its release I got so much love and affection from just one film,” Madhavan told media in an exclusive interview here.
“I wish I could do a film every three months as who doesn’t want to drive Bentley or Rolls Royce.. but at the end of the day you should be satisfied with the work you are doing. For me, doing a film just for the sake of money doesn’t work,” he said.
Madhavan does agree that getting good work is difficult but he believes going with the pace as he doesn’t look at competing with other actors.
“I am not competing with Khans or with anyone. The only thing I believe is doing good work. So,
competing with each other is media game. Making a good film is difficult, creating the right first look.. making sure the film is marketed well and is released on time...,” he said. “I feel winning an award doesn’t give me any authority. That is a sad part... <g data-gr-id="24">may be</g> after winning an Oscar I can make a film as the budget is there,” he added.
