“I have heard about the movie `Gravity’…the cost of sending the Indian rocket to space is less than the money invested to make the movie,” said Modi after the successful launch of a rocket that carried five foreign satellites to space.

“Gravity” is a 2013 British-American 3D epic science fiction thriller film. It was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, and stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts involved in the mid-orbit destruction of a space shuttle and their attempt to return to Earth.

The budget of the movie was $100 million. (IANS)
