Actor Madhavan posted a video on his Instagram page about the release of the teaser of his latest of the movie Rocketry- The Nambi effect. the movie which is based on the life of ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan.
In a video message, Madhavan said, “There are several stories that you might have heard about and there are other stories you may not have a clue about. When you hear his (Nambi Narayanan’s) story and see his achievements, you will not be able to stay silent.”
Rocketry-The Nambi Effect will be helmed by National Award-winning filmmaker Ananth Mahadevan in Tamil, Hindi and English.
In an interview to an entertainment portal, he said, “I heard about the ISRO spy case and how Nambi Narayanan, who was charged with espionage, fought to prove his innocence. When I met this gentleman, I learned the whole story behind his life. Unfortunately, it was the spy case that brought him to limelight whereas he should have been known for a much better reason.”
Madhavan will play the lead in the movie, talking about the character, the director said, “His character starts as 27-year-old Nambi Narayanan in Princeton and goes on till he is 70. So we are shooting the film in three stages: first in his early thirties to mid-forties, next from mid-forties to late fifties – that’s when the spy case actually happens and finally in his seventies, where he recalls everything. He has to undergo the transformations for each phase. He is going to do all by himself.”
