New Delhi: Actor Akhilendra Mishra, who is starring in a new TV comedy 'Tu Mera Hero', says the plot of the show attracted him to try his luck in a fuuny role for the first time.
The 54-year-old 'Chandrakanta' actor said the show is different from other daily soaps on TV. "The show has a different approach and audience will not get bored of the content. 'Tu Mera Hero' follows the concept of situational comedy, which is rarely seen on TV these days. I liked the concept of the show.
"The idea was to bring something new and it should not be repetitive and boring. Every character in the show have different shades," Mishra told PTI.
The show is a family drama that traces the journey of two young neighbours' unconventional love story with a tinge of comedy.
On the show, Mishra will be seen playing the role of a strict father who keeps scolding his son for wasting time. Priyanshu Jora will play the lead character Titu. Jora was last seen in a small role in Anil Kapoor's miniseries '24'. The 21-year-old actor said he relates to the character well.
"I can relate to it because in reality I am somewhat like that. That doesn't mean that I am lazy in real life but there are many shades in the character of Titu which reflect a part of me on the show," he said.
'Bade Ache Lagte Hain' actress Sonia Balani stars opposite Jora on the show. She plays a perfectionist who wants everything in place.
"My character is always lost in her dream world and craves to have a perfect romance in life," she said about her role. Shot in Mathura, the show will start from December 22.
