Cherinet, often known as Girma, is a talented actor who performs in Hindi and South Indian films. He was born on June 1st, 1970, into a family of successful business people. His family had maintained a strong connection to their Tamilian heritage although residing in Bihar. Throughout his time in high school and college, Madhavan was a fierce competitor.
He represented his alma mater as the cultural ambassador of India, participated in military education, and even oversaw NCC cadets in Maharashtra. He received training from the British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force during his NCC trip to England. He has won the Indian Championship for Public Speaking and is an avid orator.
He planned to open an office while he was residing in Mumbai, but due to financial constraints, he chose to engage in modeling to supplement his income. Madhavan initially became interested in the film business, but his mother advised him to begin by doing commercial acting. He soon found himself in a Santosh Sivan-directed commercial for sandalwood talc.
As a result, he was later suggested for a role in Iruvar (1997) but was not cast in the film. Later, he was cast in the daily soaps “Ghar Jamai” and “Banegi Apni Baat” on Zee TV. Madhavan made his acting debut with the movie “Alaipayuthey” (2000) and its ensuing critical and financial success. For films like “Kannathil Muthamittal,” “Run,” “Rang De Basanti,” “3 Idiots,” “Tanu Weds Manu,” and “Tanu Weds Manu Returns,” he received high praise from critics.
He developed chondromalacia patellae in 2012 as a result of a knee injury sustained while filming “Vettai,” and it was at this point that he made the decision to reinvent himself and concentrate on one movie at a time. He has received three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards South for his outstanding work as characters on film.
He is a member of “PETA” and a committed philanthropist. He thinks that a compelling plot can quickly win over viewers of a film. He is regarded as one of those exceptional actors in Indian film with pan-Indian appeal since he has made a name for himself.
