Channel [v] will be launching a new serial about a young girl trying to make her mark in the world of boxing. It's a story of true grit and determination against trials and tribulations. Humse Hai Liife revolves around young Sia (Abigail Jain), who dreams of becoming a successful boxer just like her father, and treads the highroad of hard work and dedication to achieve her dreams.

The show was conceptualised around the insight that women in our country have to toil that much harder in careers that are conventionally dominated by men. To take this idea beyond the show, the channel identified the leading women boxers of India, who flagged off the press conference about the show. Boxing champions MC Mary Kom, Vanlal Duati, Pinki Jangra and Neetu Chahal were further felicitated with a cash prize of Rs. 2,00,000 each by the channel, for their unrelenting contribution to the sport, as well as the exemplary determination that is an inspiration to all women in India.

Humse Hai Liife's protagonist Sia, played by Abigail Jain (earlier seen in Kyaa Dil Mein Hai, Bandini) who hails from Adarsh Colony, Delhi and is known to be an achiever. She believes that excelling in boxing will be her ticket out of her hometown. Sia wins a scholarship to the Elite School, where Coach Birendra (Ankur Nayyar) reinforces her belief that she can truly reach her goal. The story moves on to her struggle in the school and problems with Raghav, the male protagonist (played by Himansh Kohli, a fresh face).

The show will air from Monday to Friday at 7.30 p.m. beginning September 5.
