Actors Saba Azad, Namit Das, and Geetanjali Kulkarni will be a part of the immigrant drama ‘Minimum’, which will be jointly produced by Platoon One Films and Ellanar Films. The shoot of the film begins in June. It will be helmed by writer-actor Rumana Molla.
‘Minimum’ boasts of an excellent star cast including Saba Azad, Geetanjali Kulkarni and Namit Das. Writer-actor Rumana Molla will also play an important role in the film. She was brought up in Belgium and is the recipient of two National Awards in 2017.
Set in Belgium, the film deals with transactional marriage and migration with love, affection, and friendship at the core. It follows the life of newly-married immigrant Fauzia. She has been held captive by her mother-in-law Ruxana. Fauzia then finds out that all that has been told about her husband is a lie. Hope rises again in Fauzia’s life after she meets a French tutor. She then learns and unlearns and demands more than the bare minimum.
“I knew I had to be a part of ‘Minimum’ as soon as I read it. It’s a very unusual story.” The actor, who plays a French tutor in the film, feels the character of Laurie “is possibly the toughest I’ve taken up as an actor, mostly because I have to do this in a language I’m not familiar with. That’s what pulled me to the film, I knew it would test my abilities as an artist.”
