Jordanian actress Saba Mubarak's latest film, 'Mamlakt Al Naml' (Ant Kingdom) might be enjoying rave reviews but the starlet has admitted that a performance that good doesn't come easy.
The movie tells the story of the Palestinian people and life under Israeli occupation. In what many fans and critics have called Saba's most challenging role to date, she acts out different stages in the life of her character, Jalila.
Owning up to the challenges she faced, Saba has admitted that she ended up exhausting herself in the pursuit of a convincing performance.
And a difficult role wasn't the only thing standing in the way of this film's success.
Saba has revealed that all of the cast and crew had to go above and beyond the call of duty by putting in 'extra efforts', before the movie was ready to see the light of day.
Luckily for Saba and the rest of the team it seems their hard work has paid off as the film has gone down a storm with audiences across the region.
