This year on the completion of 100 years of the momentous event when Sai Baba took Samadhi in Shirdi, Mere Sai is all set to launch the historic story of Sai’s journey of Shraddha and Shaburi on Sony Entertainment Television. Abeer Soofi will been seen essaying the role of Sai Baba
It was a difficult task for the casting and production to get someone with proper looks and precision of Sai. More than 1000 people auditioned for this role and Abeer Soofi was one of them. The count was later then shot down to 300 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.
When contacted, Abeer Soofi he confirmed,“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.”
