Actress Saba Azad who essayed the role of Parvana Irani in Rocket Boys has found a special spot in the audience’s heart after her terrific performance in the series. Recently, the Rocket Boys actress talked about how she bagged the role of Parvana Irani.

Audition process took a heavy toll during the two years of pandemic and artists around the globe had to opt self-test method. Shedding the light on the same, Saba shared, “ Kavish Sinha (casting director) called me to audition for Rocket Boys in May 2020 during the first lockdown. At that time because of covid all actors were having to do self-tests, we kinda learned to be self-sufficient in a way, and help each other do these tests – sometimes getting cues from a zoom call on the laptop while shooting on the phone propped up on books, sometimes even shooting a test without dialogue cues just taking pauses for the other character’s dialogues in one’s head”.

She then added, “It wasn’t easy doing a test without the casting directors present. You end up using a lot of your own imagination about what’s expected. I ended up researching a fair amount about the era Rocket was set in, reading about the two scientists creating my own image of Pipsy down to the hair and makeup and styling it was a really enjoyable process. The upside of self tests is you can keep doing retakes till you are satisfied. For this one my best friend came over and very patiently helped me out with the camera and cues take after take. I didn’t have proper lighting so we used reading lamps to light the frame”.

Saba Azad all set to be seen in Rocket Boys 2. Apart from that, the actress is looking forward to the release of ‘Minimum’ where she will be seen slipping into the role of a French girl.
