Hyderabad: Actor R Madhavan, with the release of ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’, has stepped inside the shoes of a filmmaker.

The film finally hit the theatres on Friday, July 1, and has been released in multiple languages including Hindi and Tamil, among others.
‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ is a biopic based on the life of former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan, who was falsely accused of espionage. It is also the story of all those passionate people who make their skills their spirits, push their families aside and put everything into work. And the story of those people who are stabbed in the back when the people around them see them rising. Rocketry is about how false espionage accusations against a man obsessed with his work and wants his country to rise higher while pushing him behind the bars and the country by many years in space research.
