A source reveals, "In the course of shooting the film, the two realised that they had a different vision for the story, which was leading to creative differences between them. They had a discussion about it last week and decided to part ways amicably."

When mid-day reached out to Madhavan, he said, "Ananth Mahadevan is a talented filmmaker. But, owing to unavoidable circumstances and certain pressing commitments, he could no longer direct Rocketry. The film is shaping up well and I can't wait to tell Nambi Narayanan's story."

Mahadevan remained unavailable for comment.
