R Madhavan, who is busy with his upcoming film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, shared a selfie on his Instagram account last night, and his salt and pepper look set many hearts racing. "Editing is so much fun and exhausting:. Enjoying and fearing it... End of long travel day. Definitely getting older... #rocketrythefilm," he captioned his post.
One of Madhavan’s fans, an 18-year-old girl, could not resist slipping in a proposal in the comments section. ''Is it wrong that I am 18 and wanna get married to you,'' she wrote. Madhavan’s response was grace itself, ''ha ha God bless you, you will find someone way more worthier.''
Not only fans, several celebrities such as Rohit Bose Roy, Shalini Pandey and Vishnupriya Ravi also dropped adorable as well as witty comments on R Madhavan's post. "Getting older never seemed so good! And much excited for your venture," wrote Shalini Pandey while Rohit Roy commented "Ufff" with a smiley emoticon. Singer Vishnupriya Ravi, commented: "Not even legal to look so handsome. How just how?"
This is not the first time when R Madhavan’s photo got the attention of internet. In 2017, the actor shared a shirtless selfie, in which he sported a much leaner look. The picture went viral in no time and garnered thousands of likes on Instagram. Talking about his photo, Madhavan told news agency PTI, he said: "Now I'm a little embarrassed and under pressure because I don't look like that all the time and I am trying to see if I can be accepted again as a normal-looking guy. That was an unprecedented amount of attention from the world. I am embarrassed and thankful at the same time."
Meanwhile, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect will mark R Madhavan's debut as a director. The film is based on the life of scientist and aerospace engineer S. Nambi Narayanan and Madhavan plays the role of Nambi in the film.
