Madhavan does an amazing 12-day transformation for Rocketry; Check out the video
As we already know, R Madhavan is starring in the biopic of scientist Nambi Narayanan. The movie titled as ‘Rocketry – The Nambi Effect’ also marks Madhavan’s directorial debut. For the last few months, the actor had been in the process of putting on weight as they will be shooting his aged portions first. The actor has now released a video via YouTube which shows his stunning fat-to-fit transformation in just 12 days time. He has also clearly mentioned that didn’t go through any intense fasting or any kind surgery to reduce weight. Earlier, he had also gone long beard and hair to look strikingly similarity to Nambi Narayanan.
‘Rocketry’, said to be one of the most challenging films in his career, will have him appearing in multiple looks. He was supposed to direct the film jointly with Anant Mahadevan but the latter opted out due to some unknown reasons. Prajesh Sen, a journalist-turned-filmmaker from Kerala, who made his directorial debut with the Jayasurya starrer ‘Captain’, is part of ‘Rocketry’ team as the co-director.
Nambi Narayanan was a cryogenic division head 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 and the Supreme Court declared him not guilty. ‘Rocketry’, the 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. The movie has been planned as a multilingual in three languages – Tamil, English and Hindi.
