Coming from television to films and now web, Madhavan is an actor who has constantly re-invented himself, on screen and off it. The recent example being Rocketry—The Nambi Effect, where he transforms into Nambi Narayanan, former ISRO scientist. However, Madhavan insists that he is no method actor. “For me, if the audience, while watching my film, only sees the character I play and not Madhavan, then it works fine. To achieve that as an actor is what makes me happy, whether it takes four hours or four years,” he said. According to the actor, who recently c m y b said in an interview that good films take time, Rocketry— The Nambi Effect is one film he feels proud of, “It’s a film that has been made keeping authenticity in mind. No graphics have been used, no prosthetics have been used (he literally broke his jaw to look like Nambi Narayanan), losing or gaining weight was natural, everything was wellresearched, which takes time. It took us four years to complete the film, two years of pandemic included.” A still from Rocketry —The Nambi effect very close to my heart.” HIS IDOLS Clint Eastwood and Amitabh Bachchan are two persons I follow earnestly CHARACTER WISE Not just the film, the character of Nambi Narayanan too impacted him in a way like no other. “For 25 years, Nambi Narayanan was angry, despite the exoneration and Padma Bhushan that was awarded to him, because he felt that how can he be called a traitor. He once told me that this algo- PHOTO: SUNIL KUMAR rithm has stuck with him for the rest of his life. That moved me to the core. His story had to be told,” he said. He added it’s the best on-screen character he had played till date, “It’s not because the movie has just released, but this character is While Rocketry indeed seems to be close to his heart, Madhavan did share that he enjoys playing characters that excite him as an actor. “I don’t do a film for awards. I feel that when the audience reacts to the characters we play on screen, actors feel like Gods, getting those emotions out of so many people.” Though his fan-following remains consistent, R Madhavan is a fan of two cinematic legends, who have in his opinion, broken the rules to do what they do best. “Clint Eastwood and Amitabh Bachchan are two persons I follow earnestly. At 91, Eastwood is still making movies that he wants to, breaking rules, winning Oscars. Amitabh sir too has always managed to stay relevant.” RIP, Norman Monty Norman, the man who designed the iconic James Bond theme, has passed away at 94.
