Madhavan praises Clint Eastwood and claims Amitabh Bachchan has “managed to stay relevant”


Actor R Madhavan has spoken about two veteran actors he admires: Clint Eastwood and Amitabh Bachchan. Madhavan stated in a new interview that while Clint is ‘breaking rules,’ Amitabh has managed to stay relevant.’ He also mentioned how his recent film Rocketry: The Nambi Effect was ‘well-researched’ and made ‘with authenticity in mind.’

He also discussed what makes him feel good as an actor. Madhavan stated that if his audience only sees the character he plays in a film and not him, he is satisfied. He also stated that he does not make films for awards consideration.

“Clint Eastwood and Amitabh Bachchan are two people I follow seriously,” Madhavan said in an interview with Tribune India. At 91, Clint Eastwood is still making movies, breaking rules, and winning Oscars. Amitabh sir, too, has always remained relevant.”

“It’s a film that has been made with authenticity in mind,” the actor said of Rocketry. There were no graphics or prosthetics used, the weight loss or gain was natural, and everything was thoroughly researched, which takes time.

Madhavan’s directorial debut is Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The film is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former ISRO scientist who was falsely charged with espionage in 1994. Rocketry follows Nambi from his days as a graduate student at Princeton University to his work as a scientist and the espionage allegations leveled against him.

On July 1, the film was released in theaters. It was shot in Hindi, Tamil, and English at the same time, and it was also dubbed in Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Apart from Madhavan, the cast includes Phyllis Logan, Ron Donachie, Simran, and Rajit Kapur as well as Gulshan Grover, Karthik Kumar,, and Dinesh Prabhakar in supporting roles. Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya also make cameo appearances in the film.

Dhokha-Round D Corner, Madhavan’s upcoming film, will be released in theaters on September 23. Aparshakti Khurana, Darshan Kumaar, and Khushalii Kumar also appear in the film. Kookie Gulati directs the suspense thriller. Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Dharmendra Sharma, and Vikrant Sharma produced it.
