The video features Suriya being speechless upon seeing his friend completely transformed into the character he is playing and standing right alongside the original character that he is playing - Nambi Narayanan. When Suriya is asked if there is any resemblance, he just looks on in disbelief that the two people he is looking at are in fact different. Maddy puts his arms on Suriya's shoulder, turns to Nambi Narayanan and says, "Sir, this is my very very close friend Mr. Suriya". Nambi goes on to say that he loved Suriya's performance in Ghajini and even more in that Bala film (referring to Pithamagan).

Rocketry marks the directorial debut of Madhavan. The upcoming biographical drama is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), who was falsely accused of espionage. The story spans across Nambi's days as a graduate student at Princeton University, before exploring his work as a scientist and the false espionage charges placed upon him.
