Chennai: Having made a good impression with the Censor Board officials, Jayam Ravi's Tik Tik Tik is all set to release this Friday with a 'U' certificate. The movie, touted as India's first space movie, will see actor Jayam Ravi play an astronaut.

With the first-of-its-kind role in cinema, fans believe the character of Jayam Ravi was inspired by India's first cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma.

However, the film crew did not reveal anything about his character except the fact that Jayam Ravi would play an illusionist-turned-astronaut who does magical tricks in outer space.

Similarly, Rakesh Sharma, who went into outer space from India, had performed yoga, which created a buzz among astronomers then.
