Dr Homi Bhabha fondly called ‘The Father of India’s Nuclear Program’ visualized a powerful India in the field of nuclear science. He dreamt of India gaining self-reliance through progress in the field of nuclear power. Thanks to his experiments and tireless efforts, India emerged as one of the most important nuclear powers of the contemporary world.

Today on his 112th Birth Anniversary, SonyLIV celebrates the visionary nuclear physicist – Dr Homi Bhabha and pays tribute to his pioneering work of putting India on the world map of nuclear science, by revealing a very special scene from its upcoming original – ‘Rocket Boys’. Jim Sarbh who plays Homi Bhabha portrays his burning passion to open gateways for nuclear science in India.

The following montage shows Bhabha laying the foundation stones for Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, explaining his ideas in nuclear physics, and celebrating moments of success with Vikram by his side.

In the new clip, Jim plays a hopeful Bhabha, who wishes India, too, could be known for making its own way in the world.

Starring Jim Sarbh as Homi Bhabha and Ishwak Singh as Vikram Sarabhai, the series will retell the stories of India’s brightest nuclear physicists and their significant contributions to the country.

Jim Sarbh shares, “If India is a prominent player in nuclear energy today, it is Dr. Homi Jehangir Bhabha and his foresight we need to thank. On his special day today, I am grateful to have the opportunity to play this extraordinary character in Abhay Pannu and SonyLIV’s upcoming show Rocket Boys.”

“Bhabha’s contributions deeply impacted India’s scientific progress, and in the process, the lives of all of us Indians. There are so many reasons to remember him. Experiencing a version of his life in this series has helped me discover the vivid, multifaceted, renaissance man that he was. Charming, exacting, inscrutable, and above all, free. I can’t wait for you to watch him”, added Sarbh.

While Jim’s image is reminiscent of a young Bhabha in a dark suit, Ishwak’s Vikram Sarabhai seems more mellowed, dressed in ethnic wear.

Created by Nikkhil Advani, Roy Kapur Films & Emmay Entertainment, Rocket Boys is Directed by Abhay Pannu and Produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani.
