“My role in ‘Sumit Sambhal Lega’ is very interesting, my character ‘Happy Tau’ being a romantic at heart. And what better an inspiration than the ‘King of Romance’ himself – Shah Rukh Khan,” Tandon said in a statement.

Apart from him, the Star Plus show also stars Satish Kaushik, Namit Das, Vikram Kochar, Bharati Achrekar and Manasi Parekh Goyal.

Tandon’s entry will be seen on the occasion of Dolly (Bharati) and Jasbir Walia’s (Satish) 40th wedding anniversary.
