Official: Madhvan to star in scientist Nambi Narayanan’s biopic!
Madhavan is currently basking in the huge success of his crime thriller web series Breathe. The first season which was released at Amazon Prime Video has won rave reviews from the viewers. Madhavan’s stellar performance in a grey shaded role has been getting widespread appreciation. The actor is now getting ready for the biopic of scientist Nambi Narayanan.
Nambi Narayanan was a rocket scientist who worked at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). In 1994, he was falsely charged with espionage and arrested. The charges against him were later dismissed by the CBI in 1996, and the Supreme Court declared him not guilty in 1998.
This upcoming movie is based on Nambi Narayanan’s book ‘Ready to fire: How India and I survived the ISRO spy case’, which details about the controversial case and his infamous arrest. In the book, he has written about the mental trauma he suffered during the spy case framed against him. So, Madhavan has a highly challenging project ahead of him.
Nambi Narayanan recently said that he is eagerly waiting to see how Madhavan plays him in the movie. Bollywood filmmaker Anant Mahadevan will be directing this movie, which is being planned as a trilingual in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu languages. More details regarding the title and the commencement of shoot will be announced soon.
