Every month Madhavan would pick up one short story of his choice and flash it on his facebook and twitter handles. His selection will appear as #ActorsChoice. Madhavan’s choice of stories will depend on the visual impact the authors can create with their language. Stories with picturesque and videographic descriptions of plots is what he is looking for.
