R. Madhavan’s birthday party is an amazing example of asli yaari
By no stretch of the imagination could you call R. Madhavan a hard-core party animal. Yet, when the month of June brings with it this talented actor’s birthday, Maddy makes time to celebrate like a star!
Last week, he cut countless cakes in the company of family, then fans and finally friends — and that brings us to the warm centre of this little tale. After marking his 47th birthday with a throng of eager fans at a special screening of his film Saala Khadoos at a Mumbai multiplex, Maddy rocked the night away with some of his oldest industry buddies. It was an intimate celebration at the home of actor-director Rohit Roy, with Maddy’s wife Sarita, Manasi Joshi Roy, cinematographer Sameer Arya, Anu Gupta (Sanjay Gupta’s bespectacled better-half), Neelam and Samir Soni in attendance.
Of course there was more cake on hand and much more merriment, but the amazing thing about this small soirée was the guest list. Having known this lot personally for over two decades, I can tell you this is asli yaari at its best — Rohit, Samir and Maddy have been friends since before the birthday boy’s days as Deputy Commandant Preet on Sea Hawks. Back then, all three were rocking the airwaves, with Samir filming A Mouthful of Sky and Rohit starring on Swaabhimaan. Though they’ve each chosen a different path since those days in the early Nineties, their friendship remains as solid as ever. And that alone is an achievement worth celebrating!
