Heres how Ishwak Singh prepared to play Dr Vikram Sarabhai in Rocket Boys

Actor Ishwak Singh first came to notice with his performance in web show 'Paatal Lok' and he followed that up with an amazing portrayal of Dr Vikram Sarabhai in the show 'Rocket Boys'. Dr Vikram Sarabhai was a nuclear physicist who played a key role in developing nuclear energy in India and he is also known as the father of Indian space program and now Ishwak is all set to portray him again in second season of the show.

In a recent conversation with IANS, the actor shared how he prepared for the part. The actor stated, "I prepared for Vikram Sarabhai with a multipronged approach. I wanted to know him inside out, right from his childhood days in Ahmedabad to his education in Cambridge, the various aspects of his personal and professional life.”

He added, “I also studied the basics of rocket science and its evolution and that’s how I got to know about the pioneers. But while I was going about doing prep work I’d keep coming back to the script which was sacrosanct for me and was carved out so meticulously by Abhay Pannu. He had done immense research and had interwoven the highlights of Vikram Sarabhai’s life beautifully in the story.”

Singh concluded by saying, “Over a period of 18 months, we compared notes and hand crafted the character almost like a sculpture. What encapsulates Vikram Sarbhai is that he was a man of science and that’s how I played him."
