Saba Azad also shared an image from the screen test for her role in Rocket Boys. She is seen wearing a white shirt and a black satin skirt with a cigarette in one hand. Saba singled out a note for her close friend, actor Imaad Shah, for helping her audition for the role. “This image was the last round of a screen test - no points for guessing which one. Photo by the best bestie Imaad Shah, who helped me tirelessly through the entire audition process that happened during the first lockdown so had to be entirely self-shot, self-styled and other such,” wrote Saba. She added, “Am no hair stylist so a lot of spray went into holding that hair in place. Also, don't @ me for the death stick we were recreating an image reference we were given - I neither consume nor condone the use of tobacco aaite!”
Saba Azad is currently dating actor Hrithik Roshan. The duo are often spotted in Mumbai together.
