Om Sai Raam – Nagarjuna as Shirdi Sai

‘Doing Shirdi Sai was a spiritual experience’

The subject of Shirdi Sai is the saint who made Shirdi his home. Produced by A Mahesh Reddy, the film is directed by K Raghavendra Rao.

For Nagarjuna, who plays the Sai Baba, this will be his third devotional film after Annamayya and Sri Ramadasu where he played the role of a bhakta.

Parachuri Venkateswara Rao said at the first press conference that the shoot of the film began in Badami and only a small bit is left to be shot which will be done on July 26 at Shirdi.

“There was a ‘holy’ atmosphere on the sets. Nagarjuna looked like the real Shirdi Sai Baba,” he said.

Producer Mahesh Reddy, who is in the infrastructure and mining business, is an ardent devotee of Sai Baba.

He said, “Everyone visits Shirdi. He is Kaliyuga Daivam. We didn’t think we would get Rao, Keeravani and Nagarjuna. During the shoot spread over 60 days, the atmosphere was disciplined. We shot from 7 am to 5 pm.
“Nagarjuna is excellent. Keeravani has done an excellent job composing the songs. Gopal Reddy’s camera work is good.”
