Madhan Bob was the eighth child in his family, so he was named Krishnamurthy, which also happened to be his uncle’s name. There was much confusion in the house, so they changed his name to Madan. His brother’s name is Padmanabhan aka Babu. Both started a music group called ‘Madan and Babu’. Soon, Babu became Bob, and that is how director K. Balachander introduced him in his first film.[2]

During the shooting of Mappillai, Madhan Bob was injured in an accident. His assistant was also with him. When the car was nearing Vagaikulam, a dog crossed the road. In order to avoid hitting the dog, the driver applied a sudden brake. Because of this, the car capsized. Madhan Bob, his assistant, and the driver were seriously injured. However, Bob managed to break the glass door and save the driver and his assistant. The three were taken to a hospital for treatment. After the treatment, Madhan Bob participated in the shooting.[3]
