Eros Now has been bringing out some entertaining content. The streaming platform first brought out Sidehero, which was about a young man from a filmy family trying to get a foothold in the Indian film industry. Now, Eros Now brings to us Tumse Na Ho Payega, a web series about a guy from a second-tier city coming to big bad Mumbai and finding love, life and everything in between.

Balam is an engineer who has come to Mumbai for a job, and he already has a job – thanks to the recommendation of his friend Buddy.
