The Viral Fever (TVF) has announced its second partnership with Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) for its upcoming dramedy web series ‘Yeh Meri Family’. Starring Mona Singh and Akarsh Khurana playing the roles of the affable parents, the show will surely help 90s kids get a nostalgia fix.

Set in Jaipur over the events of the summer vacation of 1998, Yeh Meri Family, the 7-episode series revolves around the simplicity in conflicts, emotions, and bonding of the five-member Gupta family. The protagonist - 12-year old street-smart Harshu (Vishesh Bansal), 15-year old Adarsh beta Dabbu (Ahaan Nirban), 5-year old Chitti (Ruhi Khan) - the apple of the family’s eye, the quintessential 90s mom - Mummy (Mona Singh) and the engine of the family - Papa (Akarsh Khurana) – each character lends a beautiful hue to the family dramedy. Created and directed by Sameer Saxena and written by Saurabh Khanna

Sameer Saxena, TVF’s Chief Content Officer, and Head - TVF Originals said, “Yeh Meri Family is one of our biggest original web series till date and something that the TVF team is really excited about. We have put a lot of heart and soul in this show for the content to resonate with viewers. Set in the 90s and peppered with incidents that will make everyone smile and fondly remember their days gone by, along with characters that every single person can relate to, the show will have a universal appeal. It can and should be watched with the entire family. In the past, TVF gave a new direction to web entertainment with Pitchers, reinvented romantic comedies for India with Permanent Roommates, and gave road trips a new turn with Tripling. Now, with Yeh Meri Family, we intend to give a whole new dimension to family shows.”

Essaying the role of the mother in Yeh Meri Family, actor Mona Singh said, “This is my first web series with TVF and they have made me feel like family since the very first day. It feels great to be associated with them. I play the role of the tough-nut-to-crack Mummy who knows her kids inside out and is often difficult to fool. I am certain that viewers will fall in love with Yeh Meri Family and our characters.”

Akarsh Khurana, portraying the role of the father said, “Tripling remains among my most successful and enjoyable projects, so it made sense to do my web series acting debut with my friends at TVF. With Sameer Saxena at the helm of things, how could I refuse? Yeh Meri Family is a beautifully written show, full of nostalgia and relatable moments. In addition, getting a chance to act opposite Mona Singh, a legend in her own right, was a privilege. I'm super excited about people watching the show and making their families a part of ours." Akarsh’s latest directorial project High Jack released last month and he is currently working on his next Bollywood film Karwaan.
