Madhavan's new film, "Rocketry The Nambi Effect" is keeping him very busy as it has him juggling dual duties – playing the titular character, Nambi Narain, who is India's most famous rocket scientist; and as the director.

The project is indeed an exciting one, with Madhavan completely changing his look and morphing into the scientist; and Simran playing Mrs. Narain.

Recently, the actor surprised his fans by revealing that two top Hollywood actors are now part of the cast - Ron Donachie, who played Sir Roderick Castle in "Game Of Thrones" and Phyllis Logan of "Downton Abbey".

He is currently in the US, shooting part of the film there and posted a photo of him with the two actors with the caption, "With the incredible Ron Donachie (Sir Roderick Cassel from #GOT) and the Charming Phyllis Logan (Mrs Hughes from Downton Abby). What a wealth of experience and honor it has been to have you part of this film. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Ron and Phyllis are accomplished actors themselves and will definitely bring something different to the story.

Shah Rukh Khan and Suriya are in the film too, rumoured to be playing important roles.

"Rocketry: The Nambi Effect" is a film based on true events. It is about the ISRO scientist Mr Nambi Narayanan, who was falsely charged with espionage in 1994.

Madhavan will be sporting three different looks in the film and has undergone a massive physical transformation to look like a 70-year-old man. It will be released in Tamil, English and Hindi.
