The new show delves deeper into the lives of students of Warrior High, a school legendary for producing the country’s most graceful dancers and most vicious boxers. This is a show where instead of the premise of the show being who will hook up with whom, the premise is who will become what.

Thrown in the mix are new studentsSiyali, Utkarsh and Niti played by newcomer Sanaya Pethawala, Anshuman Malhotra of Haider fame and well known TV actress Juhi Aslam. These are three orphans who grew up together in a strict Christian orphanage and now find themselves invited to study at Warrior High as part of a scholarship program, and their lives literally change overnight. To add to it, there’s Abhishek played by actor Ashwini Kaul, the golden boy and a champion boxerand Parth played by newcomer Lakshya Lalwani, the dark horse – volatile, enigmatic, brimming with angst.
For the new entrants, Warrior High is everything, a new beginning, a chance to wipe the slate clean, as if their troubled pasts never happened. But the old guard is threatened by these new contenders. Clearly, Warrior is more than a school. It is an idea, a dream, a discipline. And no one exemplifies this idea more than Anwesha, Headmistress and Guiding Light of Warrior High, essayed by veteran actress Suhasini Mulay. The show also stars popular TV actress Anupriya in a key role.
