Obsession for clothes is not rare. Then and now, people can be seen keeping and owning a good collection of costumes in their dearly built king-size wardrobes. But, actor Abeer Sufi goes a step ahead with this interest. Abeer’s look of Sai Baba in Sony Entertainment Television’s Mere Sai – Shraddha Aur Saburi is fixed which is, a white long kurta with a Kafni which he carries in each and every scene of the show, but it is an amazing fact that the costumes he wears day-by-day are unique in its own way.
India’s favourite show, Mere Sai, has managed to indulge the nation in Sai Bhakti and the fan following of the show is increasing with each passing day. The show’s lead actor, Abeer Soofi, has captivated the viewers’ attention by playing Sai in the best way possible and he has also received a lot of appreciation for his performance and continues to collect the love of all his well-wishers in his kitty. While viewers see Abeer in the same white long kurta and Kafni throughout the show, not many know that he has a collection of close to 93 costumes which make his similar look unique every day. Also, with summers going on, Abeer has to shoot in heat which makes it difficult for him to be in the same set of clothes for an entire day. Therefore, the production decided to have the collection of same costumes for his character, so that it is easy for him to change during shoots without getting uncomfortable with heat and sweat in the same costume and maintain the sequence.
Giving more information on the same, Abeer confirmed, “With summers setting in, it was getting difficult for me to carry on with just one set of costume for an entire day. Almost all my scenes are outdoors and due to summers, I am prone to sweat which may spoil the scene. That’s the reason I have to change my costume multiple times a day for which at least 10 costumes are kept ready on the sets. Therefore, now I have a collection of 93 same costume of Sai baba’s character.”
