Talking about the developments of India's space agency he said, "Like Nehru said dams are the temples of modern India, ISRO has become the temple of modern India."
Tharoor praised the recent launch of the Mars orbiter and GSLV D5 by the space research organization. He was attending the launch of India's first space odyssey thriller movie 'The Strategist' directed by Prasanth Panamoottil.
"The scientific history of India which is never written collectively even today, we are going to write it. There was such a rich background of ancient scientific history which has somewhere got lost. The movie is about the struggle of the scientists and the visionaries," Panamoottil said.
"A larger part of the movie is in English but 'Brahmi script' that had existed centuries back will also be used in the movie. The movie's budget what we are expecting is about 250 crores." he said.
The release of the movie is planned for January 26 next year and the announcement of the cast and crew will be made at the music launch of the movie.
The film promises to be a classical thriller and revolves around personalities who played an important role in India's space programmes--Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Homi Bhabha, Vikram Sarabhai, Indira Gandhi, Satish Dhawan, APJ Abdul Kalam and many more.
