Madhavan has gone grey for the film and sports a beard. While it doesn’t look completely like the scientist, the actor is getting there. The actor’s fans can’t get over the fact that Madhavan is able to pull off different looks. A fan asked, “@actormaddy How come u look outstanding in every look?”

Another wrote, “It’s about his (Narayanan Nambi) eyes. There’s absolute innocence, truth, and peace in his eyes. And have seen the same in your eyes. So if anyone can do this role, that’s YOU.”


Rocketry: The Nambi Effect is co-directed by Anant Mahadevan and R Madhavan, marking the actor’s debut as a filmmaker. It will be released in Tamil, English, and Hindi. Earlier speaking about the film, Anant had 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.”

Nambi Narayanan was a scientist, head of ISRO’s promising Cryogenics Division, who was accused of trading India’s space secrets to foreign agents for money and other enticements. After 24 years, the scientist was cleared of all charges on September 14.
