R. Madhavan wanted to serve the country by joining the army, but his parents insisted him to study management. So, after earning his degree in electronics, Madhavan started conducting communication and public speaking classes all over India. It was during one of these classes that he met Sarita. She was an aspiring air hostess, and in 1991, she attended his personality development classes in Maharashtra. She eventually cleared her interview and to thank Madhavan; she took him out for dinner. “Sarita was my student and she asked me out on a date one day. I was a dark man and thought it was an opportunity. Didn’t know if I would ever get married so I grabbed on to the opportunity and married her” said Madhvan.
