It's been over 20 years since the release of Mani Ratnam's urban love tale 'Alaipayuthey'. The film launched actor Madhavan's career but sadly, was one of actress Shalini's final films before her marriage to Thala Ajith.

Talking about his experience shooting the train proposal scene, Madhavan revealed in a recent interview that he thought about his wife Sarita while Shalini was thinking about Ajith.

Shalini fell in love with Ajith while working in the film 'Amarkalam' which released just a year before 'Alaipayuthey'.

Talking about their friendship, Madhavan fondly remembered how Ajith helped him during his early days at Chennai. Both actors share similar interests in planes and cars.

Madhavan also admitted that he doesn't mind playing a negative role against Ajith in a film if he's approached.

Well, wouldn't that make a great combo on the big screen? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
