R Madhavan, who makes his directorial film debut with Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, is unsure whether he will ever direct another movie anytime soon. The actor’s wife Sarita wants him to concentrate on acting for the time being. Madhavan, who wrote, directed, and acted in the film, described the process as "exhausting."
In a recent interview, Madhavan was asked if he intended to direct again, and he replied, “I don’t think I have it in me to direct again. It’s an exhausting process and I have no immediate plans as such to direct. Even with Rocketry, since the original director attached to the film had to exit the project due to his prior commitments, I took up the mantle as I didn’t have time to approach anyone else. Mr. Nambi believed in me and he pushed me to take up the job and I thought it was my duty to do it.”
The 3 Idiots actor further revealed how his wife wanted him to focus on acting, saying, “My wife wants me to focus on acting for now. I’m no Mani Ratnam to confidently make films in different genres. I don’t think I can do it. If I have to direct again, then a story should really move me.”
Rocketry will be released in Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada in addition to Hindi and English. It is a biopic on Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer on ISRO who was falsely accused of espionage.
