Mumbai, May 13 (IANS) Saba Azad who had impressed with her performance in ‘Rocket Boys’ and is looking forward to starting on her next project, ‘Minimum’. Filming for the French language film begins in June, and will be helmed by writer-actor Rumana Molla.

Talking about the how exciting the past few months have been, Saba shared: “The last few months have been electric for me as an actor – rocket boys was received beautifully by audiences and critics alike, the whole ride from being cast as Pipsy to the show coming out has been pretty overwhelming really, it’s the kinda project any actor would kill to be a part of. I signed ‘Minimum’ soon after rocket was released and it’s been prep time ever since because I’m acting in a language that isn’t my own it’s like being in a workshop every day with a very steep learning curve which is so exciting for me as an actor.”
