Opening up about his character, Jim Sarbh said, “In these strange times the relevance of science, scientific research, and innovative, possibly life-saving technology becomes startlingly clear. ‘Rocket Boys’ is about Vikram Sarabhai and Homi Bhabha, icons in Indian scientific history. I hope their story continues to inspire generations of scientists, researchers, and innovators. I am looking forward to its premiere on SonyLIV.”
On the other hand, Ishwak Singh added, “It's not often that one gets to play a real-life character like Vikram Sarabhai. I was drawn to the concept not just as an artiste, but as a Indian who takes immense pride in the legacy of these iconic scientists. 'Rocket Boys' marks my second stint with Nikkhil Advani, and I am grateful that the team chose me for this role.”
