R. Madhavan: 95% of Indians don’t know about Nambi Narayanan, which I think is a crime

 R. Madhavan, who is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming film Rocketry – The Nambi Effect, feels that not knowing about great scientist Nambi Narayanan is a crime.

Madhavan was interacting with the media at the teaser launch of the film. Talking about the idea of making this film, Madhavan said, “This film has become an obsession for me. Three years ago, Anant Mahadevan narrated me the story of Nambi Narayanan. I felt that it’s story of man who has faced injustice in his life because he was jailed over false charges.

“After that, I started writing script on him and it took me seven months to write that script. When I used to meet him regarding script writing that time, he never used to talk about his achievements but as I kept talking to him, I realized I am doing an injustice with this story because I am only talking about his case.

“I feel sometimes that a man wronged is a nation wronged… So, to do injustice with him (Nambi Narayanan) is like doing injustice to the country. I, therefore, threw the script which I wrote for seven months. I took another one-and-half year to write script of this film with Anant Mahadevan and other writers.”
