After impressing the audience with his versatile acting over the years, actor R. Madhavan is all set to woo fans with his performance in the film the Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. Interestingly, the movie will also mark Madhavan’s directorial debut. The upcoming biopic is based on one of the legendary ISRO scientists Nambi Narayanan and Madhavan has undergone a massive transformation for his role.
Recently, the 48-year-old actor took to his social media and a collage showing his final transformation for the film with the caption, “After 14 hrs on the chair.. Who is who is WHO? #rocketryfilm.”
Earlier, filmmaker Ananth Madhavan was supposed to direct Rocketry: The Nambi Effect but after he left the project, Madhavan decided to wear the director’s hat. Talking about the same, Madhavan said, “Ananth Mahadevan is an extremely talented filmmaker, however, owing to unavoidable circumstances and certain pressing commitments he could no longer direct Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.”
As the actor’s new look resembling the elderly scientist in his mid-70s was shared online by him, it got everyone talking, not just about his talent skills and versatility but also how he imbibed the look and personality working towards it over two years.
And as the photos of his older look went viral, Twitterati are busy giving it a meme treatment. Juxtaposing photo of a Madhavan from earlier and his look from Rocketry, desi Twitterati have introduced a new kind of #10YearChallenge. From how one looks like when they start medical school to how they look like when they finally become a doctor, users on the microblogging site have come up with hilarious contexts and it’s on point.

Talking about his look, Madhavan wrote on Instagram, “The process took painfully long, about two days of sitting on a chair for 14 hours at a stretch. Initially, it looked easy, but later I realised how tough it was on the body.”
The film is a biopic on Narayanan, who was charged with espionage in 1994. CBI dismissed the charges against him in 1996 and the Supreme Court declared him not guilty in 1998. The film is set to release in English, Hindi and Tamil.
