R. Madhavan on rumours of a remake of Rehnaa Hai Tere Dil Mein: ‘I think it’s foolishness’

Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, which starred R Madhavan, Dia Mirza, and Saif Ali Khan, was directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon and produced by Vashu Bhagnani.

R Madhavan recently spoke with Pinkvilla about his path and feels grateful for it as he promotes his forthcoming movie, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. “I am not the kind of guy who looks back often and kind of evaluates one’s life about what has happened. I am actually a very live-in-the-moment kind of a guy. So I am grateful that I have had the ability with my work, and the love of the public to do what I want to, and when I want to – that freedom being a rarity. But I don’t gloat over it. I am just grateful for it,” says Madhavan.

He also responded to rumors that the remake of his 2001 masterpiece Rehnaa Hai Tere Dil Mein is in the works. “I wish them all the very best,” Madhavan keeps it short. When asked if he is happy about it, the actor responds, “I think it’s foolishness, and that’s my opinion. I wouldn’t want to touch that. I wouldn’t do it as a producer. I wish them all the very best from the bottom of my heart, I do. And I hope they surprise, because nothing in the industry can actually be predicted but it has a lot of memories attached to it for a lot of people,” shares Madhavan.

He further adds, “For the audiences, it is more than a movie. It is sort of an anthem in some ways. It’s like almost saying that 15 years from now you want to remake 3 Idiots. I don’t think it’s a sensible… let me just put it again – I think it’s a brave decision.” Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, which starred R Madhavan, Dia Mirza, and Saif Ali Khan, was directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon and produced by Vashu Bhagnani.
