The much awaited biopic on former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan is due to hit the screens. In a video posted on Instagram, actor R Madhavan, who plays the role of the scientist in the movie, officially announced the release date of the teaser, which will be on October 31.
In a rather intriguing video shot in vector, Madhavan introduces us to the story of the scientist with the help of the proverbial three wise monkeys. He begins by saying that not knowing some stories is the same as not caring about your own country. In a word play in Tamil, the actor goes on to say that Narayananâ€™s story is so remarkable that it is impossible not to see it, listen to it and once you listen, itâ€™s impossible not to speak about it.
The movie titled Rocketrey: The Nambi Effect is helmed by National Award winning director Ananth Mahadevan. The official announcement of the movie was made almost a year ago and itâ€™s said that Madhavan has been undergoing immense training to get into the skin of the character. The actor will be seen playing the role of the scientist in different stages of his life, from the age of 27 to 75.
Following Madhavan's announcement on Twitter, actor Suriya extended his support and tweeted in appreciation of the project.
It is after the box office success of Madhavanâ€™s last outing Vikram Vedha, that the actor will be playing the role of Nambi Narayanan. The former ISRO scientist, who introduced liquid fuel rocket technology while in-charge of the cryogenic rocket project, was accused in an ISRO espionage case but was later acquitted of all charges and received a compensation of Rs 50 lakh from the Kerala government this October.
