It’s Madhavan’s 48th birthday today!

Madhavan made his Bollywood debut with the much-appreciated film, Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, opposite Dia Mirza in 2001

New Delhi: R Madhavan is popularly known as the ‘chocolate boy’ of Tamil cinema, and is one of the finest actors we have in India. Madhavan is one of the very Tamil few actors who tasted success in Hindi cinema as well. Madhavan made his Bollywood debut with the much-appreciated film, ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’, opposite Dia Mirza in 2001.

Being a vegetarian, he was named PETA India’s 2012 ‘Person Of The Year’, while his son won PETA India’s ‘Compassionate Kid Award’ in December 2014. Madhavan is so passionate about vegetarianism and nature, that he has a kitchen garden of his own, wherein he grows a few veggies and herbs required for some tasteful dishes within the kitchen itself.

Today he turns a year older, and fans are showering him with lovely birthday wishes. As the actor turns 48 today, we still swoon over him. Check out some of his posts from Instagram:
