After impressing us with his acting talent, Madhavan decided to take on the director's mantle with the film Rocketry The Nambi Effect. The story of the film is about Nambi Narayanan from ISRO who was falsely charged with espionage. He was arrested in 1994 and finally in 1998, the Supreme Court of India declared him to be innocent. The film will chronicle his story of struggle and the problems he faced during the time.
The teaser of the film was released last year and Madhavan announced that he would be co-directing the film with Ananth Mahadevan. But now Madhavan will be helming the film alone and of course playing the lead role as well. Ananth Mahadevan had to opt out of the project due to some unavoidable circumstances.
The film is being simultaneously made in Tamil, English and Hindi. It will also be released in Malayalam and Telugu. The film produced under the banners of Tricolour Films, Varghese Moolan Pictures and Saffron Ganesha Entertainment. It is expected to release later this year.
