'A dream come true' for 'Rocketry' writer Sukhmani Sadana at Cannes

R Madhavan's 'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect' premiered at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on May 19th and it is a huge deal for Bollywood.

 

Writer Sukhmani Sadana is over the moon as she makes her debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

R Madhavan's 'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect' premiered at the 75th Cannes Film Festival on May 19th and it is a huge deal for Bollywood.

Sukhmani, who has been a part of the team of writers, is overjoyed. The writer said that when they got the news that 'Rocketry' had been selected for Cannes, they had mixed emotions—they were nervous, excited, and shocked all at once. It was a beautiful moment nevertheless. She recalled that Madhavan called her and she responded, in surprise, to him, that it was a dream come true.

Sukhmani went on to say that the response to the film has been great and she was super nervous while flying to Cannes. The film is Madhavan's brainchild, and she is a small part of the team, but still feels privileged to have her project at Cannes.

'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect' is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, who was a former scientist and aerospace engineer of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation). He was accused of espionage. R Madhavan will be seen playing the titular role in the film. It will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and English languages.
