Madhavan’s next film is on ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan

first_imgAfter a four-year break, Madhavan returned to silver screen with the super hit Irudhi Suttru in 2016. He then went on to deliver another blockbuster titled Vikram Vedha.Currently, the actor is busy with a handful of projects in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.According to the latest report, Madhavan will work on an untitled biopic based on the life of ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan. National Award-winning filmmaker Ananth Mahadevan will be directing this film in Tamil, English and Hindi.In an interview to an entertainment website, director Ananth said, “I heard about the ISRO spy case and how Nambi Narayanan, who was charged with espionage, fought to prove his innocence. When I met this gentleman, I learned the whole story behind his life. Unfortunately, it was the spy case that brought him to limelight whereas he should have been known for a much better reason.”Ananth further added that he will treat the biopic as an international film.”For a film like this, we cannot think of an actor who is not educated or aware. The actor should not only be in tune with just politics and general awareness but science itself. And Madhavan is an electronics engineer, and he knows science and what rockets are. He also had a stint in Indian Air Force training. I think Madhavan is the only Indian actor qualified to do this part because he is a thinking actor who is also well-read.”Madhavan is expected to sport three different looks in the film.”His character starts as 27-year-old Nambi Narayanan in Princeton and goes on till he is 70. So we are shooting the film in three stages: first in his early thirties to mid-forties, next from mid-forties to late fifties – that’s when the spy case actually happens and finally in his seventies, where he recalls everything. He has to undergo the transformations for each phase. He is going to do all by himself,” the director revealed.advertisementThe untitled film will go on floors in a month or two. The film will have English portions shot in Princeton and Russia, and Tamil portions in Sriharikota.ALSO SEE | Madhavan’s transformation for Maara will make you go weak in the kneesALSO WATCH | Hype about Tanu Weds Manu frightens us: Kangna and Madhavanlast_img read more
