Talking about the show, Jim 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.”

Ishwak said, "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," he said.
