Rocketry Nambi Effect star R Madhavan recently spoke about the ongoing North vs. South debate. The actor said he thought he was stretched for no reason. Actor Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein, who has successfully found his footing in the Tamil and Bollywood industries, will premiere his upcoming sci-fi drama Rocketry: The Nambi Effect as a pan-Indian release.
In a recent interaction with India Today, the actor spoke about the North vs South debate and added that there were only three significant successes from the South, but still there is a tone about it. “I think there is too much hustle and bustle. There are three films – RRR, KGF 2 and Pushpa – which did really well. The others managed to do a good job. There are other films (like The Kashmir Files and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2) in Hindi which did well.” He continued, “I think people’s acceptance has widened because of the pandemic. They’re accepting the movies they like and rejecting the ones they don’t.”
The 3 Idiots star believes that this acceptance and rejection setting will always be there. Madhavan also claimed that there is no fixed formula for making successful cinema. “Finding a formula there and knowing if the South or the North is better is not plausible. I think the weaker ones try to see a model there. The idea is to make films that are ambitious enough to bring the audience in theaters. Some movies may not have worked because they may have been made before the pandemic in terms of approach and issues like pacing. That’s all there is to it. The actor summed it up neatly by asking, “Why are we becoming a country that wants to make news about everything?”
Rocketry: The Nambi Effect hits the big screen on July 1 in Tamil, Hindi, and English. The film will also be dubbed into Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada.
