Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, released in 2001, was Madhavan's Bollywood debut film. He played the lead role opposite Dia Mirza (also making her Bollywood debut) while actor Saif Ali Khan played a pivotal role in the movie. Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is the remake of Tamil film Minnale - both movies were directed by Gautham Menon. Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is the love story of Madhav Shastri (R Madhavan) and Reena (Dia Mirza) almost ruined by Madhav's arch-rival Rajeev Samra (Saif Ali Khan). Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein did average business at the box office but it acquired cult status over the years.
On the film front, R Madhavan was last seen in 2018 film Zero. his upcoming projects are Rocketry: The Nambi Effect (which will release in Hindi, English and Tamil) and Telugu movie Nishabdham, which will release in Tamil as Silence.
