R Madhavan found his name linked to the Ratan Tata biopic while interacting with his fans on Twitter over the weekend. The actor responded to a fan who asked if he was going to star in the industrialist’s biopic. An excited fan shared a photo of Madhavan which had 'Ratan Tata biopic' written on it.
The 50-year-old decided to address the rumours and put them to rest once and for all. Refuting the claims, Madhavan stated in a tweet that he is not working on any such biopic. He broke the bubble and added that he is not aware if a biopic on Ratan Tata is in development in the near future.
The Twitter user’s question reads, "Is this true that you are gonna play a lead role in Ratan Tata Biopic? If this happens it's gonna be a huge inspiration to many."
Madhavan explained the circulating posters on social media were made by some fans and that such a project is not being discussed. Dismissing the speculation, Maddy wrote, "Hey unfortunately it's not true. It was just a wish at some fans will made the poster. No such project is even on the pipeline or being discussed." [sic]
