Rocket Boys teaser: Jim Sarbh’s Homi J Bhabha aspires to change India’s dependency on other nations; Ishwak Singh’s Vikram Sarabhai lends credible support

On nuclear physicist Homi J Bhabha’s 112th birth anniversary today, Sony LIV shared a new teaser of their upcoming drama series, Rocket Boys that stars Jim Sarbh and as Bhabha and Ishwak Singh as Vikram Sarabhai, the renowned scientists who pioneered India’s nuclear programme and space research. Popularly known as 'Father of the Indian nuclear programme', Bhabha was also the founding director of the Atomic Energy Establishment, Trombay (AEET) which is now named the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in his honour. 

The clip shows Sarbh as Bhabha who ponders on the fact that nothing is manufactured in India and everything is imported from a European country. He is seen in a dark room, asking two serious officials about their Italian shoes, Swiss watches and leather belts. “Cycle se lekar sewing machine tak, everything is from a foreign country. Hum India mein kuch banate hi nahi. Aur main ise badalna chahta hu (We make nothing in India and I want to change that),” he says. He goes on to say that he intends to change all this and make India self-sufficient with no dependency on foriegn nations while Ishwak's Vikram Sarabhai lends credible support.
