Actor Madhavan said, “After the completion of Vikram Vedha, my friend suggested me to make a movie based on real incidents that happened in the life of an ISRO scientist, who was falsely accused of revealing the National secret to the Pakistan army, was tortured in prison almost to death, but he came out and proved his innocence. Initially, I was excited about this idea as it gave me an impression of a James Bond-styled flick. Brimming with my assumptions, I met Nambi Narayanan, which changed my dimension of life. To be precise, I would categorize my life as Madhavan before and after meeting Nambi Narayanan. I had known that he is one of the intelligent minds of India, but when I met him, I could see an adorable aura in him. His lips were shivering with anger and worries, which had lots to speak. When he started recalling the injustice done to him, he almost got high-tempered, and I had wanted to cool him down. I said, “Sir, Let bygones be bygones. You’ve been acquitted on all charges.
Actor Madhavan surprised the media and press gathering by screening a few pictures and footage of his physical transformation for the role of Nambi Narayanan. What became a moment of shocking surprise was the way; he realigned his teeth for getting an over-aged look, and the belly he had to gain. And, the picture that was clicked demoing his shedding down of weight and rejuvenation in just 14 days won him applause.
Apart from writing and directing ‘Rocketry’, R. Madhavan has produced this movie along with Sarita Madhavan, Varghese Moolan, and Vijay Moolan. Sam CS has composed the background score, Sirsha Ray has handled the cinematography and Bijith Bala has taken care of the editing.
