Soon to be released on SonyLIV, titled, Rocket Boys starring Jim Sarbh and Ishwak Singh is a story of India’s two brightest nuclear physicists Homi Bhabha & Vikram Sarabhai. The story will portray the journey of these two legendary human beings who had a vision and courage to turn their dreams into reality. They have carved their own paths which have led to some brilliant discoveries.
The story is created by Nikkhil Advani, Roy Kapur Films & Emmay Entertainment and is Directed by Abhay Pannu. It will be produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani.
Talking about the two leading characters of Jim Sarbh as Homi J Bhabha and Ishwak Singh as Vikram A Sarabhai, Jim said, “These guys, Vikram and Homi, were just so fascinating. Two young men with fantastical dreams for their country, who just kept at it, working and working, to bring their visions into reality, to make their country a scientific superpower. And all the while, through toil and trouble, they managed to have colourful exuberant lives, as well! I can’t wait for the audience to watch it on SonyLIV.”
Ishwak Singh also went on further to add, “It is delightful for an artiste to portray a character that is so iconic and deeply rooted in the country’s history. At the same time, it is a huge responsibility. I hope I have been able to do justice to the role of Vikram Sarabhai, who initiated space research and helped develop nuclear power in India. It has been a wholesome experience to work on this show. I am looking forward to it on SonyLIV.”
