Mihir Mishra, last seen as lead
in Sahara one's Hare Kaanch ki Chudiya, has made a romantic come back
in the newly launched 9X breezy romantic comedy 'Jamegi jodi.com'.
Mihir first shot to fame with the very realistic portrayal of Dr Rahul in Sanjivani.
Later on he appeared in quite a few shows, but failed to re-capture the magic and charm of Dr Rahul.
An upbeat Mihir is now certain that this time around, the audience
will love this new avatar. ' It's a full blown comedy. I have never
tried comedy before. So I am having a lot of fun shooting for it.'
'My character is that of an NRI who opens a dating site, and his
office is situated right opposite a tradional marriage bereau, headed
by a very traditional girl (played by Mona Vasu). The story is all
about the clash between the two very different concepts which
incidently work towards the same goal - of match making', says an upbeat Mihir.
One wonders if it is going to be one of those which starts with a
fresh air and becomes stale in no time. Mihir is optimistic that this
time it will be different. ' We have been assigned 62 episodes by the
channel, and so we are definitely on for one year. But the concept is
very different, and so is the treatment. Hence I am hopeful that this
will be a surefire entertainer without falling into any foul traps.'
Not long back, in another interview, Mihir had rued that he had no
clue why no producer was giving him any roles. When reminded of that,
he laughs. 'Well, I still maintain that, but now finally someone has,
and I am very glad about it. Moreover, what I am more happy about is
that, this role was conceived around me, and I was approached by the
Its good to see another good actor back on TV in a different role.
