R Madhavan was viciously mocked on social media for his ISRO assertions. During Rocketry: The Nambi Effect marketing, the actor revealed that Panchang was used to launch a rocket into space.
Actor Ranganathan Madhavan, more commonly known as R Madhavan, is currently trending on social media not only for his upcoming film ‘The Nambi Effect,’ but also reportedly for saying that the reason the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was able to launch a rocket into space for its Mars mission successfully was that it used the Panchang, which is the Hindu calendar. This statement caused R Madhavan to go viral on social media.
An actor is heard claiming that the Panchang was responsible for the Indian space agency’s successful launch of the rocket into orbit in a video that was uploaded to Twitter and re-posted by another user.
Carnatic musician TM Krishna supplied translations of his words, which read as follows: “Indian rockets did not have the three engines (solid, liquid, and cryogenic) that let western rockets blast themselves into the orbit of Mars. Due to the fact that India did not have this… information was utilized in the Panchang”.
“It contains the celestial map with all of the information on different planets, gravity pulls, sun’s flares deflection, and other information, all calculated flawlessly 1000s of years ago, and as a result, the micro-second that the launch was calculated using this information. According to the translation that was supplied by TM Krishna, R Madhavan stated that the rocket was launched, that it traveled around the earth, moon, and Jupiter’s moon, and then ricocheted like a play toy and inserted itself into the orbit of Mars.
Since that time, R Madhavan has come under fire from a number of users of social media for making what they consider to be “stupid remarks and disrespect of facts.”
In reference to R Madhavan’s upcoming film, which is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and ISRO aerospace engineer, a user on Twitter posed the question, “He found out everything while directing a single movie?” The film is inspired by Narayanan’s experiences as both a scientist and an ISRO aerospace engineer. “What kind of idiocy is this? Panchakam with a scientific approach? Another person said that they prayed that God would preserve their nation.
“Some people just don’t have an interest in science. It’s OK if you don’t understand science. An irate user wrote, “But it’s best to keep your…mouth shut when you’ve no understanding as to how things truly function; instead of citing some WhatsApp bullshit and making a spectacle of yourself,” in reference to the false information and urban legends that are spread through the messaging programme.
A journalist who was making the same allusion remarked that it was “such a shame to witness the guy, who was once a poster boy of Tamil romance flicks transform into a WhatsApp uncle.”
The first film that Madhavan directed was titled “Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.” The film, which is scheduled for distribution on theatre screens all around the globe on July 1st, depicts the espionage scandal that irrevocably altered Nambi Narayanan’s life and seeks to uncover the truth behind it all. The film also stars Phyllis Logan, Vincent Riotta, and Ron Donachie, and special cameos are made by Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya. Madhavan plays the title character in the movie, and he is joined by these other actors.
Earlier in June, Madhavan and scientist Nambi Narayanan met astronaut Sunita Williams in the course of the promotion of the film. This meeting took place in the United States and took place at a promotional event. In spite of the fact that he was accompanied by a distinguished scientist and a well-known astronaut, Madhavan was not successful in winning over his audience when he attempted to describe the launch of an ISRO rocket.
