Before venturing into acting, R Madhavan was quite a popular face in advertisements. One of his old car commercials recently went viral as fans could not get enough of the young Madhavan, and particularly the accent he has in the ad.
In the video, the Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein actor is seen talking about his lady love and how she never cared about rubies or diamonds or even a big house. “She never cared about seeing the world, you are my world Nikhil, she would say,” Madhavan is seen mouthing the dialogues in a heavy English accent.
He then goes on to share that when he had enough money to buy her the luxury car, his partner said that she was happy with her little car. “Liar,” Madhavan says with a smirk on his face.
