Madhavan joins hands with popular comedian

Madhavan is all set to star in Tamil movie titled Maara, which will be directed by debutant Dhilip whose claim to fame is a short film titled Kalki. The film will have Shraddha Srinath playing his lead pair, who had shared the screen space with Madhavan in the hit movie Vikram Vedha.

The latest about the film is that stand up comedian Alexander Babu is set to make his debut in films with Maara. Alex wrote: “Spent a few days again in rainy Kochi this week hanging out with the one and only @actormaddy and @dhilipgads and the gang. Learning so much thru this big special project. Waiting for the formal announcement!”

Alexander Babu is quite famous for his show ‘Alex in Wonderland’ which is also available on Amazon Prime. Now, Alexander Babu has been roped in to play an important role in director Dhilip’s debut mainstream Tamil film with actor Madhavan.

Formerly a software engineer, Alexander Babu is now an actor, singer and theater artist with a great fan following. Now as a next step, Alex is set to make his debut in films, and will be joining Madhavan’s next movie Maara, directed by debutant Dhilip Kumar.

Whether Alex will act in the movie or he will be writing the comedy track/ dialogues for the movie is not confirmed yet, and an official announcement is awaited. Maara is touted to be a ‘pure romance drama’ that will see the Vikram Vedha pair together again on screen.

Madhavan is currently busy with Nishabdham. Directed by Hemant Madhurkar, the film boasts of an ensemble cast including Anushka, Shalini Pandey, Anjali and Kill Bill fame Michael Madsen in important roles.

Says the film’s director, “Anushka learnt painting and sign language to play this character. We had artists and sign language instructors teaching her the nuances. She used to practise both every day.”
