In the show, Luke and Cordelia will be seen as the last Viceroy and Vicereine of India, Lord Louis Mountbatten and Lady Edwina Mountbatten. As far as Andrew Cullum is concerned, the actor will portray the character of PM Clement Attlee of the United Kingdom (1945 to 1951). On the other hand, Alistar Finaly will play the part of Archibald Wavell, the Commander-in-Chief and Viceroy of India preceding Mountbatten.

Talking about Richard Teverson, the actor will be seen as Cyril Radcliffe, who was the chairman of the Boundary Commission for the Partition of India.

Nikkhil Advani on roping in global talent for Freedom At Midnight

In an official statement, Nikkhil Advani said one of the biggest regrets he had during Rocket Boys was that he wasn't able to cast actors from the USA and UK because of the COVID-19 lockdown. However, with Freedom At Midnight, Nikkhil was determined to get global talent onboard for the series. 

"We had to get the actors who not only physically resembled these historical figures but those who would challenge the super Indian actors we had cast," he said.
