Co-produced by filmmaker Nikhil Advani, Roy Kapoor Films and Emmy Entertainment, the show is directed by Abhay Pannu. “Accepting the role of Homi Baba is very special, to some extent our shared Parsi tradition, but mostly he is an interesting, motivated, renaissance man,” Jim said of his role. He is best known for his performances in Padmavat, Made in Heaven and Nirja.
Ishwak became a popular face after being featured on the Amazon Prime Series song locks. Commenting on the Rocket Boys, he said, “We often hear about the biographies of athletes and freedom fighters, but the Rocket Boys’ comment on the lives of science fiction legends in India really caught my attention when I first heard the script.”
