Who is Madhavan most scared of?

R Madhavan dancing with Malaika Arora Khan on stageWho is R Madhavan most scared of? Of course you know the answer, who other than his wife. In the recent telecast of Big Money, a quiz show which enables families earn big money by answering questions related to the TV shows & movies they like, the family of Ronit Roy, including his mother, his brother Rohit Roy and Rohit's wife Mansi Joshi Roy, was invited where Madhavan put across a question to Mansi asking if she was bothered that her husband (Rohit Roy) appeared with too many girls in the recent reality TV show by the name Desi Girl. Mansi replied that she was not at all worried as she completely trusts his husband and she was thinking that how much his husband works.

R Madhavan was quick to reply that Manshi should befried his wife Sarita Birje who puts up such questions in front of her. :) Madhavan and Mansi have previously worked in a TV series called Saya.

Tete-a-tete with R Madhavan on Big Money

You may not be able to see Sarita Birje on the TV, but R Madhavan has returned to the TV to host a game show titled Big Money on Imagine TV in which each family will answer questions based on TV content and vie for a Rs 1 crore cash price. Here are the excerpts:

You hosted another game show Deal Ya No Deal five years ago. What's different about Big Money?
The concept is different. They have the entire family playing together so you get to see family feuds live on TV. That apart, the game is based on what you watch on TV and that's become such a fad in our country.

Have you ever won a lottery or game show?
The only thing I have ever won was a water bottle at a school competition. But I have won a lot of scholarships, NCC awards, and even a national level public speaking contest.

Any game show you've been addicted to?
I used to watch Tol Mol Ke Bol on Zee TV. Rituraj was hosting it before me so I was quite addicted to it. But Siddharth Basu's Quiz Time on DD was my prime-time addiction.

Your fave TV host?
Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. It's very difficult to make a show interesting by just sitting in one place. Mr Bachchan is able to create drama on that little table with just his voice.

What's next?
I have just finished my next Hindi film Tanu Weds Manu with Kangna Ranaut. We shot in Kapurthala and I tried my best to maintain a diet but those Punjabi parathas always got in the way. Next up is a Tamil film Manmadhan Ambu with Kamal Haasan and Trisha which we will start shooting in Monte Carlo from July.
