India’s Space Odyssey has been narrated in Hindi by space enthusiast and the versatile Indian cinema actor R. Madhavan. The documentary captures India’s Space Programme which helps understand the tough circumstances under which ISRO succeeded.

Bhabha on India’s quest to become a leader in space exploration and pioneering space technology.
“The Indian Space programme since its inception has achieved significant feats, thanks to the contributions of all the people who have worked alongside the programme. We are delighted that a platform like Discovery has been taking these initiatives to the people in an attempt to encourage and inspire them,” said Dr K. Sivan, Chairman ISRO, Secretary DOS.
R. Madhavan on narrating ‘India’s Space Odyssey said “Curiosity has brought humans to where we are today, and it will continue to do so. I thank Discovery India for this wonderful learning opportunity, and I feel honoured to have lent my voice to a project that could inspire future generations to embark on their quest to explore space”.
