R Madhavan has managed to impress us all by his acting skills over the years. And now he is all set to surprise his fans by his performance in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The movie is going to mark Madhavan& aerospace engineer directorial debut.
The biopic is based on the legendary ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan. Interestingly, Madhavan has to slink into the skin of ISRO scientist and aerospace engineer and undergoes a massive transformation to look just like him in his role.
There are 5 steps that include the transformation which make him look exactly like Nambi Narayanan. The steps that you need to know are:
1. Growing the mane
Recently, Madhavan took it to Instagram and shared a picture from his transformation. The picture was taken in the set of the film where he was seen with the clapboard of Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. He looked fantastic in his beard.
Madhvan said, “The process took painfully long, about two days of sitting on a chair for 14 hours at a stretch. Initially, it looked easy, but later I realized how tough it was on the body.”
He further explained that look was only half the battle won. He stated, “The other half was really tough because the age group I am playing is around 70-75. It wasn’t easy, and it’s probably one of the toughest looks and characters I’ve had to pull off.”
2. The Cut and Blowout
He got a new haircut and blow-dry which is similar to Narayanan.
3. Coloring it Snowy White!
He shared a video which shows him coloring his hair as well as his mooch and beard.
4. Final looks
His final look for the biopic shows him as the Indian scientist.
Madhavan talked about his fantastic transformation and said, “Mr. Nambi is a very good looking man and he has got his own charm and charisma. It took me around two and a half years to actually imbibe him and learn how to walk like him.”
The 48-year-old actor looks unrecognizable in his legit looks like Narayanan’s doppelganger. And these pictures are so convincing that it is difficult to understand and identify him.
