R Madhavan's ambitious project, Rocketry The Nambi Effect, which was supposed to be released on April 1, will have its world premiere on May 19 at the 75th Annual Cannes Film Festival, during a prime-time slot; at 9 pm. This was confirmed by the Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur. Interestingly, India’s selection as the country of honour coincides with the 75th year of Independence.

R Madhavan, the lead actor and director of the film, said he was in a daze. "I just started by wanting to tell the story of Nambi Narayanan. I’m unable to believe all that’s happening. With God’s grace, we’ve waited long. I’m grateful and thrilled to watch all the good things happening in the film. As a debut director, my nervousness is making it difficult for me to breathe." All he hopes is to make India proud.

The biopic of Nambi Narayanan, a former ISRO scientist and aerospace engineer, will hit the screens on July 1.

Shot in Tamil, Hindi, and English, the film will also be released in Malayalam, Telugu, and Kannada.

Rocketry The Nambi Effect has an ensemble star cast, including international actors Phyllis Logan, Vincent Riotta, Ron Donaiche along with Simran, Rajit Kapur, Ravi Raghavendra, Misha Ghoshal, Gulshan Grover, Karthik Kumar, and Dinesh Prabhakar.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya will be playing cameos in Rocketry The Nambi Effect, which has music by Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame.

Made on a huge scale, the film has been shot in India, France, Canada, Georgia and Serbia. The cinematography is by Srisha Ray.

Produced by TriColour films, Varghese Moolan Pictures and 27th Investments, the film is being distributed by UFO Moviez and Red Giant Movies in India. The same will be distributed internationally by Yash Raj Films and Phars Film Co.

The film's trailer was recently showcased at Expo 2022 Dubai where it received a positive response from the audience.

India will showcase five movies at the "Goes to Cannes Section''. These include Baghjan (Assamese, Moran) by Jaicheng Zxai Dohutia, Bailadila (Hindi, Chhattisgarhi) by Shailendra Sahu, Ek Jagah Apni (Hindi) by Ektara Collective, Follower (Marathi, Kannada, Hindi) by Harshad Nalawade; and Shivamma (Kannada) by Jai Shankar.
