R Madhavan started his directorial debut ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ last week. In the film, he will  be portraying the character of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) scientist Nambi Narayanan. Madhavan has admitted that getting the perfect look was a painfully long process. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the look has been selected by Rohan Jagtap and Farah Tarapore under the guidance of Vikram Gaikwad.

Taking to social media, Madhavan posted a picture on Instagram in which he is seen alongside 75-year old scientist Nambi Narayanan and both of them look very similar.

Check out Madhavan’s look here:

Madhavan will be stepping into the shoes of a 75-year-old scientist in the film. Madhavan told Mumbai Mirror, “Prep involved sitting in a chair for around 14 hours for two days. It seemed easy to start with but as we went along, I realised just how tough it is to get even the hair right. But in the end, the effort was worth it.”

Talking about the octogenarian scientist, Madhavan said that Nambi Narayanan sir is a good looking man and it took me more than years to imbibe his charm and charisma and learn how to walk like him. He said that one of the toughest challenges for him was to look like a 75-year old man.

“This film has been with us for three-and-a-half years and the prep took longer than we imagined. We couldn’t delay it further and had to roll with it. Since Ananthji’s prior commitments could not be postponed, he had to roll with it,” Madhavan told the tabloid.

‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ is all set to release three different languages namely Tamil, English and Hindi later this year. The filmmakers have finalised Simran to play Madhavan’s pair in the film.
