Mumbai : Hindi GEC Star Plus, in its efforts to turn younger and attract more youth audience has unveiled a new romcom fiction show titled “Tu Mera Hero”. The story of a lazy lad, was unveiled in Delhi and the makers claim that it will be like a breath of fresh air when it commences on 22nd December @ 8 PM replacing ‘Ek Hasina Thi’.
Touted as a romantic-comedy, the story of the show centre’s around Titu and his ladylove Panchi, and how their chemistry works despite the former’s laid-back attitude towards life.
Priyanshu Jora, who will be seen as Titu, said that the show would have “a unique concept”.
“’Tu Mera Hero’ has a different concept. Unlike other women-oriented daily soaps where focus is on ‘saas-bahu’ fights, we will depict the journey of Titu and Panchi in a unique way. Every character is given equal amount of space in the show,” Priyanshu told.
“Titu is a lazy and relax kind of a person, but he has a great sense of humour. People are going to have a laughter ride with him. What makes him unique is his different take on life,” he added.
Sonia Balani is roped in to play Panchi and she describes her character as a romantic girl who dreams of having a perfect life partner.
“Her character is similar to ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ and ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ types. She dreams of fairy tales. She wants everything perfect in her life,” she said.
Replacing Star Plus’ thriller “Ek Hasina Thi”, “Tu Mera Hero” will also star veteran actor Akhilendra Mishra and Amita Khopkar as Titu’s parents. At the launch, the lead pair did a romantic scene.
Extensively shot in Mathura, the show promises to bring out the finest aspects of life.
With different genres of shows like “Diya Aur Baati Hum”, “Everest” and “Nisha Aur Uske Cousins”, Star Plus is trying to widen its target audience with “Tu Mera Hero”.
