With its impeccable cast, creative storytelling, and amazing production, Season 2 continues to captivate audiences till today.

The creation of this great show would not be possible without the stellar cast and crew, and their hard work. Reminiscing how special the show was Jim Sarbh, who played Dr. Homi Bhabha on the show, said “Loved playing Dr. Homi Bhabha, one of our country’s greatest minds. I loved working with Abhay Pannu, Nikkhil Advani, and the rest of the team: Harshvir Oberoi, Meghna Gandhi, Achint Thakkar, well, the list goes on and on. The team worked incredibly hard and believed in the story we were trying to tell, and I am grateful the show resonated in the hearts and minds of the audience. Thank you for watching, and for sharing in the vision Dr. Sarabhai and Dr. Bhabha had for our country, and the camaraderie, humour, and pursuit of excellence that they shared with each other.”

It can be seen that the show was special to everyone involved in it, adding onto this, Ishwak Singh, who played Vikram Sarabhai on the show, remarked, “The first scene of Rocket Boys, which is a boardroom scene with Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai arguing over the future of the country, politics, and science was very special. The conflict between their ideologies and the undercurrent tension between two friends is very palpable. That experience was very special; it hit close to home.”

There’s no doubt in mind that this show’s impact was a great one, both on the audience and the people behind it. Discussing the impact of the show, director Abhay Pannu remarked, “Rocket Boys has been life-altering for me and I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who watched and loved our show. I think the best part about the show is that even after a year, people are still discovering the show and finding new aspects to resonate with and love. That’s what makes it really special and I hope that continues for many years to come.”

Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur added, “I think the biggest achievement of Rocket Boys has been to shine a light on the amazing lives of two founding fathers of modern India. To inspire our generation to dare to dream impossible dreams – and then to make them come true!”

Producer Nikhil Advani shares “I am thrilled that with Rocket Boys, we managed to celebrate the inspiring journey of Homi and Vikram, two regular young ‘boys’ who inadvertently left an indelible mark on the world of science, whilst also navigating the building of a nation. Our success lies in the fact that this story about science at the helm, made its way into people’s hearts, giving way to more unique stories to come to the fore.”
