How the right child artiste for ‘Masaba Masaba’ was found.

Director Sonam Nair says finding a younger version of the protagonist for the upcoming show based on moments of the life of fashion designer Masaba Gupta was challenging.

The makers of show “MasabaMasaba” had to audition at least a hundred children over the period of three weeks before finding AmariahAwantaye for the role.

“Amariah was the perfect fit to play mini Masaba in ‘MasabaMasaba’. She has the same spunk and sass that Masaba Gupta has, and we wanted to be able to seamlessly incorporate elements of her childhood into the show. It wasn’t an easy task, finding someone like Amariah, but we’re thrilled that we managed and are sure the audience will fall in love with her,” said Sonam.

Talking about the casting, Panchami Gavri, the casting director of the show, said: “Casting the younger version of Masaba was a tricky job. We needed the kid to behave like an adult and, at the same time, look identical to Masaba Gupta. It is a really well-written part and we wanted to do justice to it. Finally, we put out these crazy posts, which is how we landed on little AmariahAwantaye. We found her pictures super cute and requested an improv audition. Needless to say, she was phenomenal and we had found our Mini Masaba.”
