"My parents and I are strong believers of Sai Baba and when I was approached to play Baija Maa's role in the show, I considered it to be Baba's blessing. When the 'Mere Sai' team called me for an audition, I was overwhelmed and excited," Kishori said in a statement.
"Baija Maa was a very strong woman and used to take a stand up for the right in that era and she had an unshakable faith in Sai and this is the common thread of devotion I share with her. Also, I have previously worked with Sachin Ambre, who is the director of the show. Collaborating with him again gives a different level of comfort and confidence.
"I am looking forward to do some wonderful work with the show and my character. With Baba's blessings, I trust the audience is going to accept me as Baija Maa," she added.
The show is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.
