Remember when actor R Madhavan uploaded a shirtless selfie on Instagram, and it went viral in 2017? The actor captioned the shot, "Morning light post a shower.. feeling fresh after a good long nights sleep.. after the long travels ..." Take a look at it here:

Even after three years, it's still one of the actor's most popular and liked photos on social media. Madhavan has finally spoken up about his infamous shirtless selfie and his wife's response.

"I am embarrassed! I don’t know why it happens! I am not the most hot-looking guy, you know. Hrithik Roshan is a Greek God and he should have that appeal. I am in awe of him. Why I would have it, I really don’t understand," he stated.

The actor also revealed that his wife advised him to be age-appropriate and refrain from uploading such photos. Ouch!

However, in an interview with the Telegraph, Madhavan confessed that for the time being, he would prefer to bask in the limelight.

"Frankly, I can’t decode it, but I also don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth... let me just enjoy it for now."

While he has stopped uploading shirtless photos on Instagram, the actor continues to win hearts with his random posts on the platform.

"I don't even know why I put up those pictures. I am questioning myself here. Is it to see if I still have it? Is it the fear that I am not being seen enough and that people will forget me? But I don't do it too frequently now," he wondered out loud.
