The film revolves around Nambi Narayanan, a scientist and an aerospace engineer for the Indian Space Research Organization. The story will explore the scientist’s early days as a Princeton University graduate, his work as a scientist and the false espionage charges against him. Shah Rukh Khan will also be making a cameo appearance in the English and Hindi version of the film. Saravanan Sivakumar will make a cameo in the Tamil version.
For writing the script, R Madhavan took help from Narayanan’s autobiography titled, Ormakalude Bhramanapadham as well as Arun Ram’s official biography titled, Ready to Fire: How India and I survived the ISRO Spy case. He also had regular conversations with Nambi Narayanan to discuss his life experiences for the sake of accuracy. He has also called it his biggest film ever and that he had been working on the script of this film for the past two years. For playing the older version of the scientist R Madhavan gained weight while taking advice from Aamir Khan on how to do so.
