R Madhavan is splitting image of Nambi Narayanan in first look of his directorial debut Rocketry: The Nambi Effect
R Madhavan's Rocketry: The Nambi Effect will hit theatres in Tamil, English and Hindi later this year.
Actor R Madhavan seems all set to start filming his directorial debut Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The film will focus on the works of Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) scientist Nambi Narayanan.
In a recent post, Madhavan is seen sporting a look almost akin to Narayanan's doppelganger. With silver white hair and beard, the actor looked a spitting image of the noted scientist. Madhavan shared the images on social media.

Madhavan also serves as the director of the film, after co-director Ananth Mahadevan walked out of the project. The actor confirmed the news stating that Ananth had to depart from the film owing to "unavoidable circumstances and pressing commitments".
Rocketry: The Nambi Effect portrays Narayanan's journey, who was wrongly accused of espionage in 1994. It will hit theatres in Tamil, English and Hindi later this year. The makers have finalised Simran to play the female lead in the film.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.

"I have always romanticised shepherds crossing the mountains with their sheep as it creates a beautiful picture, but when I read this book, it took me by surprise as it revealed the real struggles that they were facing," says director Krish on adapting the book Konda Polam into a film.
