Ensuring that December is a month to remember for its viewers, ALTBalaji and ZEE5 unveiled the trailer of their upcoming family drama titled ‘Hum Tum And Them’. The web series stars one of the most famous names in Indian television, Shweta Tiwari who will be seen making her digital debut alongside the stylish and suave Akshay Oberoi in the lead role.
Part of the ensemble cast includes Bhavesh Bhanushali, Ashika Bhatia, Gautam Ahuja, Trupti Khamkar who will play pivotal roles in what seems to be a journey filled with a series of highs and lows.
With the poster, released yesterday, already raising curiosity levels amongst the audience, the trailer further spilled the beans on the twist in this tale. ‘Hum Tum And Them’ is far from the mainstream love story. Not only is it the story of a couple, looking to begin their second innings of love and start afresh, but it's their kids from their previous relationship that adds a host of uncertainty.
With Shweta’s daughter going through what every teenage girl goes, Akshay’s trio doesn’t make things any smoother for him as they are welcomed to the ‘new woman’ in their father’s life. It is an unusual love story between two lost souls, who find solace in each other and get ready for a journey leaving behind their past and hopeful for the future.
Family is all about relationships and what makes it work is not giving up. Speaking about the trailer launch, actress Shweta Tiwari said, “Having worked with Balaji before, it feels great to be making my digital debut with them. It’s like coming back to school after a long vacation. The first thing that caught my interest was the script.
I’ve played the role of a mother before, but this is something that I’ve never done before. The sheer novelty of the show despite it being a family drama is what made me want to be a part of Hum Tum and Them. I hope this freshness appeals to the audience as well and the show goes on to be a huge success.”
Akshay Oberoi said, “While every actor or actress in their career may get to play the role of a father or mother, not many would get the chance to portray this character with so many layers. It was super exciting to play the character of Yudi and Knowing that this would improve my acting skills by leaps and bounds, there was no way I wasn’t going to be part of this show. I had a blast working with the entire team and I am sure the audience will take a liking to the show as well.”
‘Hum Tum and Them’ revolves around a family drama and the pain that everyone goes through in maintaining perfect harmony in the house. It’s a story unlike any other you’ve seen as two people who get a second chance at love almost lose it because they don’t feel they deserve it.
