Star Plus’ next offering Tu Mera Hero (earlier tilted Mera Nikhattu) is set to go on air from December 22 at 8 pm replacing Ek Hasina Thi.
The show is the story of Titu, a lazy, but affable boy who wants to live a stress free life. Despite his laid-back demeanour, he is quite charming and popular. He is a hero for Panchi, the girl-next-door. A channel note says, “It is the love story of two people with different ideas of life but end up with each other.”
The show stars youngsters — Priyansh Johra and Sonia Balani — and has been produced by Shashi Sumeet, the brain behind one of the most successful shows on television, Diya Aur Bati Hum. Sumeet Mittal, in one of his earlier interviews to Screen, had said how he is best at making family dramas and even this one is going to be one of them.
Priyansh Johra, who was earlier seen in a small role in 24 on Colors, talking about his character says, “What an experience it has been so far playing the character of Titu. He is quirky and lazy but very adorable. He is the perfect hero as he charms people with his imperfectness. Since, it’s my first lead show with a channel like Star Plus, I’m overjoyed but also nervous”.
