Actor Mena Masood is thrilled about his film Aladdin. However, his casting journey was like a roller coaster ride. According to JustJared.com, Mena said, “I sent in an audition tape when it came out to the world. They had put on all these public casting calls and my agent sent me a request to put in a tape. And then we didn’t hear anything for four months. Usually, as an actor, if you didn’t hear back in a month, it’s usually dead in the water, so I moved on from it as actors do and I forgot about it.(sic)”
However, he did not waste any time. “Four months later we get a call…. I did another tape. I flew to London twice to test for it with Naomi [Scott] a few times. And then I booked it,” he said.
