Odisha is no longer “India’s best kept secret”; it’s known to all, said actor R Madhavan, who was all praises for the State’s sports infrastructure during his first visit here on Wednesday.


On meeting Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at his residence, the ‘Rocketry’ film actor heaped praises on the highly-equipped Bhubaneswar Kalinga Stadium. He was accompanied by wife Sarita Birje and son Vedaant Madhavan, who has recently bagged gold medal and rewritten the National Junior Record for 1500m freestyle swimming.


CM Patnaik congratulated Vedaant on his achievement and wished him luck for an Olympic medal someday.


“What an excellent job you’ve done with the stadium. I loved it…the vision..I’m just looking forward to it getting completed now,” R Madhavan said to Patnaik.


Patnaik appreciated Madhavan’s latest movie ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ based on the life of ISRO’s rocket scientist S Nambi Narayanan. Later Madhavan offered to arrange a show for Patnaik.
