Critically acclaimed series Rocket Boys’ actor Jim Sarbh has been nominated for the International Emmy Awards in the best actor category. This is Sarbh's first Emmy nomination and he feels extremely overwhelmed.
Sarbh finds himself competing with some very strong international competition, with actors such as Gustavo Bassani for the Argentinean series Iosi, El Espia Arrepentido, Martin Freeman from the English series The Responder, and Jonas Karlsson from the Swedish series Nattryttarna (Riding in Darkness).
Rocket Boys, which also stars Ishwak Singh, delves into the fascinating world of India's space exploration, paying homage to the legendary scientists who contributed to the nation's scientific advancements. Sarbh essayed the role of Dr. Homi J. Bhabha, often referred to as the 'Father of the Indian Nuclear Programme’, for which he earned great acclaim.
Homi Bhabha was responsible for developing India’s nuclear research which eventually became an instrument in nuclear technology for energy production and the nuclear detonation in 1974.
Expressing his gratitude and excitement at being nominated, Sarbh said, "I am overwhelmed and excited to be nominated under the Best Actor category at the International Emmy Awards for my portrayal of Dr. Homi Bhabha in Rocket Boys.
“It is an honour to be recognised among such talented individuals from across the world. This nomination is a testament to the hard-working, dedicated, and extremely talented cast and crew, who brought the incredible story of Dr. Sarabhai and Dr. Bhabha to life," he added.
