• CLOSETED STANCE

India Book of Records & now Asia Book of Records, this man has done the maximum castings!

On Nov 1, 2017 Myriad people are responsible in making any project successful but as actors are the face of the project, they receive the appreciations. The crew who work behind the camera endlessly often remain the unsung heroes. One such unsung hero is Casting Director Dinesh Sudarshan Soi who on Nov 1, 2017 had set up a record for maximum castings (4,500) by a Casting Director and now his latest feat is another record with Asia Book of Records.


It’s true that casting is a field which has not been explored much but for last few years it’s slowly getting recognition. In big award shows there is still not any category like ‘Best Casting Director’ so hardly people know across the globe about the casting directors who have done extraordinary feats in their career. But as they say, keep doing the hard work and one day your work will speak for yourself, has come true for this young man.

Dinesh Sudarshan Soi (born on May 17, 1984) of Mohali, Punjab, India has set the record for being the Finest Casting Director in Asia Book of Records by successfully casting 5000 projects. The projects comprise feature films in almost all the languages, international films, festival films, short films, documentaries, TV shows, music videos, commercials, and print shoots as on March 13, 2019.

Upon being contacted, Dinesh Sudarshan Soi confirmed the news. He dedicated this world level achievement to his beloved father.

"I am a Casting Director in the industry because of my father and today I am getting recognition as Finest Casting Director, that's all his blessings. This record has been entered into Asia Book of Records on March 13, 2019, the day my father left for his heavenly

abode. And hereby, I would like to dedicate this achievement to my father Late Shri Sudarshan Soi whose name is and will always be in between my name - Dinesh Soi" said Dinesh Sudarshan Soi.

Asia Book of Records is a platform where the record holders of all major National ‘Book of Records’ including ‘India Book of Records’, ‘Vietnam Book of Records’, ‘Indo-China Book of Records’, ‘Laos Book of Records’ and ‘Nepal Book of Records’ meet to compare, compete and claim the title of ‘Asia Book of Records’ Holder.

Congrats Dinesh for making the feat ...
