It has been some time since Rahul Madhav started his innings in Mollywood. Debuting as the lead in film Vadamalli, the talented actor went on to prove himself in subsequent films, holding his own against actors like Prithviraj, Dulquer Salmaan, Arvind Swamy and Meera Jasmine.
It was his performances in Memories alongside Prithviraj and the Tamil blockbuster Thani Oruvan with Swamy that turned the spotlight on the young actor. He is now quite the busy bee not only in Mollywood but in Kollywood and Sandalwood too.
The actor has finished the shoot of the Prithviraj-Bhavana starrer Adam Joan and he is excited. Rahul plays Prithviraj’s brother yet again in the film, after the same role in the hit film Memories. Though he does not want to divulge too much about his role, Rahul says, “This is a thriller but one that stresses on family bonding.
The shooting of the film was held in Scotland and it was a beautiful experience.” This is his second film with Prithviraj. He shares a warm relationship with the actor about whom he says, “It is very inspiring to work alongside Prithviraj. His commitment to cinema is unquestionable and that passion comes across in his work and words.”
Moving on to his other projects, Rahul names Njaan Mallu where he plays the lead opposite Leona Lishoy. This is a coming-of-age movie and is made in a lighter vein but also has a beautiful love story wrapped in it. Another project that Rahul is looking forward to is the anthology Crossroads, where he will be seen in the 15-minute vignette titled Lake House. This also provided him the chance to catch up with a friend. “Richa Panai is acting in this segment where I play a pilot. She was my heroine in my debut Vadamalli and Bangkok Summer. Though we did another film together, it did not see the light of the day. It was two friends catching up after a long while. I am happy she is doing well in Telugu and Hindi,” he says. He also has another Mollywood film in the works.
Offers from Kollywood too are coming by but Rahul has not committed to any. “I would rather wait and do good films than just randomly sign on every role that comes my way!” he says. Kannada films have also beckoned him with two projects. Having worked across industries, Rahul finds no difference in the industries except for the language. He states, “I am comfortable in Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.”...
