The Lord Venkateshwara role in Om Namo venkateshaya is being played by ” Saurabh Raj Jain” who is the leading man for the role of all Lord Vishnu avatars on Television screen. Saurabh Raj’s pick by the legendary Telugu director ” Raghavendra Rao” for the role of Lord Vishnu in his latest Devotional flick ” Om Namo Venkateshaya” is not at all shocking as this young talented and good looking actor cum model had already won millions of hearts with the roles of Krishna and Vishnu in different Epic Television shows in Hindi.
Saurabh was lucky enough to be picked for the role of “Krishna” in Jai Shri Krishna , the devotional serial aired on colors in 2010. However, the flick was not so popular across the country but he did grab the attention of the movie and serial makers as he played the role perfectly. That is when the important offer landed in his career in the form of Lord Vishnu’s role in Devon ke Dev Mahadev . Though he didn’t play the title role and also the lead actor ” Mohit Raina” dominated with his superb looks as Lord Shiva, Saurabh too was successful in tilting the audience attention towards him with his perfect appearance as Lord Vishnu. The soap continued for couple of years on Life ok and stood as one of the leading programs in terms of TRP ratings.
The dubbed Telugu version of “Mahadev” as “Hara hara Mahadev” was also successful and this helped him to bag the most prestigious role of Lord Vishnu in the Telugu film ” Om namo venkateshaya” starring one of the Telugu super star Nagarjuna which was directed by legendary Telugu director K.Raghavendra rao. This surely gonna bring lot of fans for Saurabh Jain as Telugu people has immense love for the role of Vishnu, Krishna or Venkateshwara. People worshipped the late NTR who frequently played lord Krishna in movies and even in previous decades, Actor Suman too enjoyed admiration for the role of Lord Venkateshwara he played in ” Annamayya” starring the same star Nagarjuna and again directed by K.Raghavendra rao.
Now since Actor Suman is too old to look good on screen for these roles, Raghavendra rao did a huge search to find an apt person and he could not find any one better than Saurabh Jain.
