Besides showcasing films, TIFF is also known for its parties where celebrities from all over the world mingle with each other. Many of the events raise funds for charity and several feature big-name performances.
Being a huge fan of the American action-drama television series ‘The Unit’, Madhavan was pleasantly surprised to see the popular actors – Dennis Haysbert and Michael Irby from the show at the party. The versatile actor chatted with them for long thereby praising their performances, informing them that he’s a huge fan of the TV series. Needless to say, Madhavan also clicked a selfie together.
The actor says, “I attended the festival to give a speech at one of the events. I met Denis and Michael at the after-party. I chatted with them about Bollywood and Hollywood, and how both the industries are catering to the same audience. Hollywood films are releasing in India, and are even competing with Hindi films at the box office.”
