Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan is a Hindi language comedy series that aired on Zee TV channel. The series aired every Wednesday at 7:30pm IST. The concept of this comedy draws greatly from the city of Mumbai - the melting pot of rural simplicity and urban complexity.


The story revolves around a simple man, Hariprasad who comes to Mumbai from a small village, Jaunpur to fulfill his dream of becoming a glamour photographer. He has worked very hard to shed his small-town image, anglicised his name from Hariprasad to Harry and hates talking about his past. He tries to act as if he is from a foreign country and not from a small city of India. The story takes a twist when Hariprasad comes to know that his cousin, Balkrishna (Balu) is also coming to Mumbai to become a movie star. Sadly, Balu also gets a job where Harry already works, and now every time seeing Harry pretend to be a city slicker, Balu tries to unveil his truth of boy from a small village. And the sitcom begins!
