No life without wife's parents, says Madhavan

Mumbai, April 27 - Sooraj Barjatya will envy this. In a scene straight out of one of his feel good films about family ties, actor R. Madhavan is currently in the US with his extended family.

'And that invariably means my wife, son Vedant, my parents and my parents-in-law,' Madhavan told IANS.

In fact, the actor is as close to his wife Sarita's parents as he is to his own.

'There's no difference in my mind and heart between my parents and my wife's parents. If they hadn't supported me during my courtship days, it'd have been impossible for a Tamilian, born and brought up in Bihar, to marry a Maharashtrian girl from Kolhapur.

'We include my in-laws in every thing we do. Sarita and I don't go on a single holiday without both sets of parents.'

For the last few weeks, Maddy has been in Orlando with his family.

'We've rented a home here and we're staying like normal residents instead of vacationers, just lazing around, cooking, going for long walks and just being ourselves.'

However, the one thing that Madhavan won't neglect is his physical fitness regime. In fact, he's busy losing weight now.

'I first lost all my extra baggage in Kent when I was holidaying with my family last year. That helped me to play the gaunt stressed-out middleclass man in Nishikant Kamat's 'Yevanu Oruvan' in Tamil.

'Now again I've lost quite a lot of weight in Orlando for Nishikant's next, which will be in Hindi.'

Apparently Maddy has become unrecognisably slim. 'Even my son finds it hard to recognise me,' he joked.
