The remake of the famous TV soap Hum Log was announced amid much fanfare some time ago. However, the show, that was supposed to go on air in September 2010, got delayed and will now release this year.
Mona Wasu, the show’s lead actor, informs: “Yes, the delay happened due to Commonwealth Games. The show was postponed to January. I don’t know the exact date when the show will go on air but it will happen soon. The show will get a prime time slot but nothing is confirmed yet.”
Mona says that the team has already shot 26 episodes. “We completed that in October itself and the next schedule will only start in February.”
So, is Mona confident that Just Hum will recreate the same magic that Hum Log once did? “It is really difficult to recreate the magic. Now there are so many channels and the competition is fierce. People expect masala, but it is very different. This show is inspired by real-life characters. The script is very tight…it looks more like a film script than a TV script.”
