New Delhi: Actor Kanwar Dhillon, who plays the lead role in the new TV drama 'Hum Hain Na', says the show is different from the usual 'saas-bahu' stories that dominate the small screen.

Kanwar, son of veteran film and TV actor Deep Dhillon, plays the role of a devoted son in the Varanasi-set drama. Former 'Bigg Boss' contestant Pratusha Banerjee stars opposite him in the show .

"I play the role of Bunty on the show. This guy is the perfect son and friend. After a long time a male-oriented show is coming on TV and it is very light-hearted. It is different from the typical 'saas-bahu' stories on TV," Kanwar said.

Kanwar, who was previously seen in 'Do Dil Ek Jaan' and 'The Buddy Project', says he always wanted to be an actor as his father was a great influence on him.

"I have seen his life and I always wanted to be here. The best part of my journey is that I made it on my own. I knew that I will get there and I knew that I wanted to learn the hard way. My father is proud of this," he says.

The actor has previously worked in serials like 'Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha Season 2' and 'Do Dil Ek Jaan'.
