New Delhi: R Madhavan is back to work after his shoulder surgery and recently wrapped the shooting of his upcoming Telugu film Savyasachi. Speaking to news agency IANS, Madhavan said that reinventing himself is getting "tougher" with each passing year. "It is getting tougher every year in terms of trying to reinvent yourself. It is more exciting and more rewarding without a doubt, but it gets more and more tough for sure," Madhavan told IANS. Savyasachi is Madhavan's first Telugu film in eight years. In a career spanning two decades, Madhavan has explored the medium of television, films and he recently starred in web-series, titled Breathe.

When asked what motivates him to explore new creative realms, the 47-year-old actor told IANS: "To be aspirational and ahead of the common man in terms of his intelligence and knowledge, and then be aspirational for him. If I am not aspirational, if what I am doing does not grab his (common man's) attention and he doesn't respect it, he will not watch it. So, the whole idea is to stay ahead of the group like Amitabh Bachchanji has managed to stay ahead for the last 50 years. The idea is to be ahead of the curve."
 


Madhavan recently dropped out of Navdeep Singh's historical drama and from Rohit Shetty's Simmbato recuperate from his shoulder injury. Madhavan's next Bollywood film is Chanda Mama Door Ke, which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. "I am also going through some more scripts. It is going to be quite a busy year for me," he said.

Madhavan was last seen 2017's Vikram Vedha.
