Madhavan while speaking to the media recently said,” I got an SMS for director Rajkumar Hirani that he wanted to meet me. I went to see him without knowing the reason. When I met him he narrated the story of Three Idiots. I felt that I was not suitable for the role of IIT student. But I acted some scenes. There were tears in his eyes. It was like I acted what happened in my life.
This film has created record in box office collections. Many are asking me whether I will act if this film is remade in Tamil. I cannot tell that whether I will act in that film because history cannot be created again.”
