Hindustan Times (Ranchi) - Live - - Front Page - Sneha Ma­hade­van

RMad­ha­van is all set to play Nambi Narayanan — the bril­liant mind be­hind In­dian Space Re­search Or­gan­i­sa­tion’s (ISRO) am­bi­tious project of mak­ing In­dia nu­mero uno in the space satel­lite field, in his up­com­ing film, Rock­etry — The Nambi Ef­fect. In­ter­est­ingly, he will also co-di­rect the biopic with film­maker Ananth Ma­hade­van.

Re­cently, the teaser of the movie was launched in four lan­guages — Hindi, Tamil, Tel­ugu and English — in the pres­ence of Nambi Narayanan him­self. “It’s a mat­ter of great hon­our for us to be able to tell Mr Nambi Narayanan’s story to the world. We can’t wait to tell it and we can’t wait for you all to hear it. We are truly over­whelmed with the ter­rific re­sponse to the teaser and the posters. I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting into the garb of Mr Narayanan,” he says.

“This film has be­come an ob­ses­sion for me... I am sure that 95% of the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion doesn’t know about him which, I think, is a crime,” adds the ac­tor.

At the launch, the In­dian sci­en­tist and aero­space en­gi­neer was also in­vited. “Mr Narayanan was present along with his fam­ily at this spe­cial event. He got emo­tional while speak­ing about his story and the­film. Mad­ha­van showed a ho­to­graph of arayanan from the tter’s col­lege days, hich over­whelmed e au­di­ence,” says a urce.

In 1994, the sci­en­tist as falsely charged with pi­o­nage and ar­rested. ow­ever, in 1996, en­tral Bureau of ves­ti­ga­tion (CBI) smissed the charges. nd, in 1998, the up­reme Court de­clared m “not guilty”.
