Actor-director R Madhavan, who is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, is making fans go gaga over his amazing transformation for the film. Rocketry - The Nambi Effect revolves around the life of S. Nambi Narayanan, who is an Indian scientist and aerospace engineer. As a senior officer at the ISRO, he was in-charge of the cryogenics division. In 1994, he was falsely charged with espionage and arrested. However, the charges against him were dismissed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 1996, and the Supreme Court of India declared him "not guilty" in 1998.
Sharing new stills from the film, R Madhavan said, "After 14 hrs on the chair.. Who is who is WHO???"
Meanwhile, earlier it was recently revealed that R Madhavan has taken over the director's seat for the film. Reports now have it that owing to his other pressing commitments, film-maker Ananth Madhavan had to step down from the project.
Talking about the idea of making this film, Madhavan said: "This film has become an obsession for me. Three years ago, Anant Mahadevan narrated me the story of Nambi Narayanan. I felt that it's story of man who has faced injustice in his life because he was jailed over false charges.
"After that, I started writing script on him and it took me seven months to write that script. When I used to meet him regarding script writing that time, he never used to talk about his achievements but as I kept talking to him, I realized I am doing an injustice with this story because I am only talking about his case.
"I feel sometimes that a man wronged is a nation wronged... So, to do injustice with him (Nambi Narayanan) is like doing injustice to the country. I, therefore, threw the script which I wrote for seven months. I took another one-and-half year to write script of this film with Anant Mahadevan and other writers."
