      R Madhavan Claims ISRO Used Panchang For Mars Orbiter Mission; Gets Trolled On Social Media

      |

      R Madhavan is finally making his directorial debut with the upcoming project Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The renowned actor himself is playing the central character Nambi Narayanan in the film. However, R Madhavan is now making headlines for his claims on ISRO using Panchang for Mars Orbiter Mission.

      To the unversed, the Rocketry actor had spoken about ISRO and the Mars Orbiter Mission in a recently held promotional event for the film. In his speech, R Madhavan claimed that it was the Panchang that helped ISRO launch a rocket into space and reach Mars' orbit. However, the actor-filmmaker is now getting brutally trolled for his claims, and the netizens have named him 'Whatsapp Uncle.'

      R Madhavan Claims ISRO Used Panchang For Mars Orbiter Mission; Gets Trolled On Social Media

      It all started after singer-activist TM Krishna shared R Madhavan's speech on social media and tagged ISRO, asking why this important information is missing from their website. "Disappointed that @isro has not published this vital information on their website https://isro.gov.in/pslv-c25-mars-orbiter-mission/mars-orbiter-mission-profile
      Time to also consider a Mars Panchangam!," wrote Krishna on his post.

      He also translated R Madhavan's Tamil speech into English, which reads, "In case you do not understand Tamil the gist is Indian rockets did not have 3 engines (solid, liquid and cryogenic) that helps western rockets propel themselves into mars orbit. But since Indians lacked that, they used all the information in the panchangam (Hindu calendar)."
