Madhavan, in an interview, claimed the actor ‘did not charge a single penny’ for working in the film.
The 3 Idiots actor said Shah Rukh Khan had inquired him about the film’s status and showed interest to be part of it even if it was a minor role.
He initially thought Kal Ho Naa Ho was joking.
“Two days later my wife Sarita asked me to thank Khan sahab for his kind words,” he was quoted as saying. “I dropped a message to Khan sahab’s manager asking her to convey my gratitude to him, and I instantly got a text from the manager saying, ‘Khan Sahab dates puch rhe hai shoot ki’, (Khan sahab is asking for shoot schedule) and that’s how he became a part of our film.”
Rocketry: The Nambi Effect‘s story is about an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientist Nambi Narayanan who got framed for being a spy and arrested. Even after he gets acquitted, his fight to clear his name goes on.
Ranganathan Madhavan, who starred in films such as 3 Idiots along with Rang De Basanti, will play the central protagonist. He has co-written the film with Sukhmani Sadana.
The rest of the cast includes Simran, Rajit Kapoor, Ravi Raghavendra, Misha Ghoshal, Gulshan Grover and others.
