After a Twitter user claimed he lost his house to pay for his most recent movie, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, actor R Madhavan took to social media to clarify that he did not. The movie, which is based on the life of scientist Nambi Narayanan, was released on July 1 and earned a lot of positive reviews. Recently, a Twitter user uploaded a message that claimed Madhavan, who also directed the movie, sacrificed his home to pay for it and took over as director after the original director decided to step down.
The original post, which had Madhavan’s photo with his son read, “Madhavan lost his house to fund #Rocketry and directed this movie when the original director had opted out due to prior commitments. On another note, his son, Vedaant, is winning medals for the nation in swimming. Salute for Maddy!”
Madhavan retweeted the Tweet of a user who had posted a screenshot of this and wrote, “Oh Yaar. Pls don’t over patronize my sacrifice. I did not lose my house or anything. In fact, all involved in Rocketry will be very proudly paying heavy Income Tax this year. God’s grace We all made very good and proud profits. I still love and live in my house.”
R Madhavan received appreciation for both his directing abilities and his portrayal as Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist for ISRO, in the movie Rocketry. In an interview, Madhavan said, “As an actor, you want to keep the director out of yourself when you visit a film set. Before Rocketry, I didn’t have a lot of directing experience. For me, it was just a matter of learning as I went along. When I perform, I relish the opportunity to just be myself as an actor and immerse myself in the role. I just want to finish my work, go home, and feel accomplished for having completed the day’s task. Although I’ll prevent it from happening, I know it will eventually.”
