Sony TV Mere Sai serial news – Abeer Soofi chosen amongst 1000 for the lead role
Sony TV has recently launched Mere Sai which will showcase the historic story of Sai’s journey of Shraddha and Shabur. This year also marks completion of 100 years of the momentous event when Sai Baba took Samadhi in Shirdi.
Reportedly, it was a difficult task for the casting and production to get someone with proper looks and precision of Sai. It is heard that over 1000 people auditioned for this role and Abeer Soofi was one of them. Later, the makers shortlisted 300 people and from that 3 people were short listed and finally he was amongst the top runners. Abeer had to go under mock trials over and over again thrice.
Recently in an interview, Abeer Soofi shared about bagging the role of Sai Baba and said “Yes, I am playing the role of Sai Baba in the show ‘Mere Sai’ on Sony Entertainment Television. It was way beyond challenging as I had played negative and comic roles earlier and playing Sai was a completely different experience. However everything just fell in place and I hope viewers will like this new avatar of me. It is an important role and I am putting my best foot forward to do complete justice.”
‘Mere Sai’ airs on Sony TV every Mon-Fri at 7:30pm.
