Mumbai, Mar 18 (PTI) Filmmaker Nikkhil Advani says it was a deliberate attempt to portray the two main characters of “Rocket Boys” -- Dr Vikram Sarabhai and Dr Homi Bhabha -- as regular people rather than accomplished scientists.

Written and directed by Abhay Pannu, the first season of the Hindi period drama premiered on SonyLIV in February last year. Its sophomore chapter was released on Thursday.

Through the lives of Bhabha (Jim Sarbh) and Sarabhai (Ishwak Singh), the first installment of “Rocket Boys” mapped the efforts of the two scientists in the nuclear science and space programme.
