Madhavan makes his directorial debut with Rocketry: The Nambi Effect & reunites with Simran after 17 years
Madhavan and Simran will be sharing the screen space in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, 17 years after their film Kannathil Muthamittal
Actor R. Madhavan is currently busy gearing up for his upcoming film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The film is a biographical drama based on the life of former scientist and aerospace engineer Nambi Narayanan of the Indian Space Research Organisation. He was falsely charged with espionage in 1994 and arrested. The movie will trace his life as a graduate and will also show his journey of becoming a scientist. Madhavan will not only be playing the titular character in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, but has also written, produced and directed the film.
Today Maddy took to his social media handle to introduce the female lead of the film. The character of Meena Nambi, wife of Nambi Narayanan, will be played by actress Simran Bagga. The duo will be reuniting on the big screen after 17 long years. The actors were last seen together in Mani Ratnam’s 2002 film Kannathil Muthamittal, where Madhavan played the role of Thiruchelvan while Simran’s character was named Indira. The Tamil war-drama musical was a box office success and went on to win many awards. Maddy and Simran have also worked together in the 2001 comedy drama Paarthale Paravasam.
Sharing a happy sun-kissed photograph with Simran, Madhavan introduced his fans and followers to his on-screen wife. Looking at the beautiful picture, it’s almost impossible to tell how much time has gone by. And, going by the comments on the post, the audience is super excited to see the actors together on the big screen again. The caption of Maddy’s post reads: “15 years later . Thiru and Indira turn into Mr. & Mrs. Nambi Narayanan.”
