He is currently riding high on the success of his recently released film, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, which he had written, directed and produced and acted in it as well.

The biographical drama film is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, played by Madhavan, a scientist at the Indian Space Research Organisation, who was accused in the ISRO espionage case and later exonerated. The story spans across Narayanan's days as a graduate student at Princeton University, before exploring his work as a scientist and the false espionage charges placed upon him.
