In Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, Madhavan essays the role of Nambi Narayanan. The film is based on the life of the scientist who was falsely accused of espionage in 1994. The film tells the story of Nambi’s early days as a graduate student at Princeton University, before investigating his work as a scientist and the spying allegations against him. The film was released in theaters on Friday and was shot simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and English. It is also mentioned in Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
In the film, Shah Rukh is seen in a cameo role as a chat show host who interviews Madhavan’s character in the Hindi version of the film. Madhavan recently spoke about Shah Rukh at a promotional event of his film, as quoted by news agency ANI: “I mentioned Rocketry to Shah Rukh Khan sahab (sir) when I worked with him in Zero…remembered that he met me during a of his birthday parties asked about the status of the film and expressed his wish to be part of the film.’Mujhe background mein koi bhi role chalega main is film ka hissa hona chahta hu (I’m ready to play a part in the background, I want to be part of this movie), Khan Sahab said to me. I thought he was joking.”
He had also said: “Two days later my wife Sarita asked me to thank Khan Sahab for his kind words. I sent a message to Khan Sahab’s manager requesting him to convey my gratitude and I immediately got a text from the manager which said ‘Khan sahab dates puch rahe hai shoot ki (Khan sir asks for the dates of the shoot)’.. and that’s how he became a part of our movie.”
