With back to back successful launches, India’s homegrown OTT platform ALTBalaji and ZEE5 are keeping up their promises of delivering unlimited entertainment with a plethora of diverse content offerings. Announcing the next dramedy series, ‘Who’s Your Daddy?’ which is based in ‘Dilwalo ki Dilli, gives a desi tadka vibe while depicting the carefree chronicles of a father-son relationship which turns out to be a mashup of laughter, drama, and thrill.
If there’s one thing that ALTBalaji and ZEE5 do it with style is winning the audience by roping in some popular names for its offerings. The show features one of our favourite villains on the big screen, the very talented actor Rahul Dev who was earlier seen in ALTBalaji’s The Test Case. He’ll be donning a new avatar of Prem Singh Barnala, a retired Major Subedar from the Rajputana Rifles Regiment that one hasn’t seen before. Joining him in this show will be YouTube sensation Harsh Beniwal who will be seen playing the character of Prem’s son, Soggy. Also joining them in the role of Tidda, Soggy’s son, will be Nikhil Bhambri, who was last seen in ALTBalaji’s Puncch Beat. Filled with a heavy dose of rib-tickling moments, the show is sure to create a laughter riot.
Speaking about his character, Rahul Dev said, “It feels wonderful to be back on ALTBalaji after two years. Life comes full circle, as it’s from this platform I started my OTT journey .. Feels like home ground ..I thoroughly enjoyed working on this show. Watched my character of Prem Singh Barnala evolve, finding his way through a gamut of emotions .exploring his relationships with his son, mother, deceased wife and finally accepting a new beginning with grace. This is a completely different character that I had the opportunity to explore funny, instinctive, naive, emotional, lovable, unsure of himself, gradually evolving to making peace and embracing life positively. Hope the audience will like seeing him and relate to him.”
Making his digital debut with ALTBalaji, Actor Harsh Beniwal shares, “I am really glad that ALTBalaji chose me to be a part of this show which has a completely different concept. We have seen the relationship between a father and son in a certain way, but this show will definitely change perceptions.”
Actor Nikhil Bhambri, who plays the character of Tidda says, “One can take a wild guess looking at the quirky names of the characters and get an idea of how interesting this series is going to be. I am playing the character of “Tidda” who’s sole aim is to find out “uski maa kyon hai”. With a lot of hilarious twists and turns, the web-series is a hand full and going to make everyone laugh.” You’ll see the series through Tidda’s eyes.”
