The trailer of R Madhavan’s film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect was recently screened at the NASDAQ Billboard at Times Square in New York. Madhavan posted a video of the event on his Instagram profile. The film is written and directed by the actor who also plays the lead role in it.
In the video, Madhavan is seen with ISRO engineer Nambi Narayan, on whose life the film is based, standing at Times Square as a crowd is clicking pictures and greeting the actor. Madhavan is on a 12-day promotional tour for the film in the USA, after his visit to Cannes Film Festival.
In the film, Madhavan essays the role of Nambi, the then head of ISRO’s cryogenic division, who was falsely accused of espionage and arrested in 1994. The Supreme Court dismissed all charges against him in 1998.
Rocketry will have a worldwide release on July 1. It also stars Phyllis Logan, Vincent Riotta and Ron Donachie. Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya are having special appearances in the Hindi and Tamil versions of the film, respectively.
