Actor Madhavan To Host National Geographic’s Mega Icons Cinema News
R Madhavan will be the host of the National Geographic Channel’s Mega Icons that will feature the journey of cricketer Virat Kohli, politician-actor Kamal Haasan along with some other renowned icons of the country.
The show brings together some of the most inspiring personalities, selected carefully from different walks of life and also includes former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam, spiritual leader and Nobel laureate Dalai Lama, and social activist and India’s first women IPS officer Kiran Bedi.
Premiering in September with Virat Kohli’s life story, each episode of the five-part series will dig deep into the lives of these five Icons. National Geographic and R Madhavan, with the help of acclaimed scientists and expert psychoanalysts, will scratch beneath the surface to magnify milestone instances in the Icons’ lives. This new format to look into the lives of Icons who inspire millions, will be used to question whether these personalities were born to be different, or were moulded into greatness by their life experiences.
Commenting on the series, Madhavan said, “We enjoy watching each ball rushing towards the fence from Vi- rat’s bat. And the excellence that Kamal Hassan brings to the silver screen.
But sometimes, we all sit back and wonder — what really has made these Icons what they are today? Were these personalities just born to be great, and their success defined from day one? Or did their journey through life, their experiences and hard work, really shape them into the giants we revere. I am excited to join them to decode this mystery, and bring to viewers a completely new and incredible perspective of what really goes into making an Icon.”
