R Madhavan, who is making his directorial debut with Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, is quite excited about the film which is all set to hit the theatres on July 1, 2022. The actor claimed that superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya didn’t charge any money for their guest appearances in the film.
“Be it Suriya or (Shah Rukh) Khan Sahab, none of them charged any fee for the film. They didn’t even charge anything for the caravans, costumes, and assistants. Suriya flew out to shoot in Mumbai along with his crew on his own money. He didn’t even charge for the flights or for the dialogue writer who translated his lines into Tamil," Madhavan said.
“There are a lot of good people in the film industry. But, I am from outside. People have helped me a lot. Just on my request Amit Ji (Amitabh Bachchan) or Priyanka Chopra posted a tweet (to support the film). I am grateful for their love and respect towards me,” he added.
The actor-filmmaker claimed that when Shah Rukh was shooting for Zero, he had a guest appearance in the movie which is when he discussed the story with SRK. The next thing he knew SRK wanted to play a role in his film.
“Even when I attended his birthday party, he remembered and said ‘Maddy, I want to do a role in your film. Just make me pass through the background.’ I thanked him for his kind words and he said, ‘No, no. I’m serious,” he narrated.
Rocketry is a biopic on Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of ISRO who was falsely accused of espionage.
