Coming up: 'Hero' on Hungama TV

'Hero' is the new show from the Hungama stable. Premiering this Monday (May 30), from the UTV stable, 'Hero' will be a live action show to be aired on Hungama TV on Monday to Thursday at 7.30 pm.

It is a live action fantasy about the heroic deeds and adventures of an ordinary boy Joy, who is bestowed with out-of-this-world magical powers by the Goddess Durga to help him fight the arch-villain Viraat

Zarina Mehta, Head of Programming, Hungama TV, said, "Hero has strong emotional appeal and Indian values, which along with the fantasy and comedy elements should make a great viewing experience for kids. Our research shows that kids enjoy the theme of 'Good winning over evil' and the struggle that follows. This also ties in with our new animation shows Sonic X and Doraemon, which have the same theme."

She added, "Hungama TV offers excellent mix pf programming that includes animation, live action and game shows that have been tailor made keeping in mind individual viewing tastes of kids across different age groups. This was possible only because of extensive research undertaken within Hungama TV and the feedback we receive on every aspect of the channel from our kid's board of directors - comprising 20 Hungama Captains aged from 4-14 years from across the country - which is valuable and encouraging for the channel."

Created by Arif Ali of UTV and directed by Waseem Sabir, the series stars Sumeet Pathak (of Tum Ko Na Bhool Paayenge, Baazigar and Tarzan fame) as Hero.

Besides all this, there is a 'Be A Hero Contest' in which a viewer can watch the show and tell the channel any exciting adventure that he/she may have experienced in his/her life in 100 words. The winner will get to come to Mumbai and star in an episode of Hero, only on Hungama TV.
