On July 4, Rajinikanth also praised Madhavan and said the film must be shown to the youth of the country.

"The film 'Rocketry' is a must-watch movie, especially for young people. In his directorial debut, Madhavan has proven that he is equal to ace directors. He has shown Padma Bhushan awardee Nambi Narayanan's sacrifices and sufferings in the most realistic manner. I thank and appreciate him for making such a movie," Rajinikanth shared a note written in Tamil on Twitter.

Later in the day, Madhavan posted a video on the microblogging site thanking the superstar for his praise.

"I don't know what to say and (the credit goes to) Nambi Narayanan sir and the full team," the actor said in Tamil.

"I really don't know what to say. Thank you Rajini sir. It's people like you that make it so worth it. Much love and respect to you," he further said in the clip.

Soon after Madhavan shared the post, his fans flooded the comment section.

"So well deserved," actor Tisca Chopra commented.
