CELEBRITY couple Hairul Azreen and Hanis Zalikha set five hours of shooting time daily for their son Yusuf Iskandar’s reality show, Harian Metro reported.

Yusuf, who is one year and seven months old, is set to appear with their family cat Bujibu Chempel in his reality show My Little Heroes – Yusuf & Bujibu.

Hanis said neither of them had any issues with their son appearing in a reality programme as he is not required to act.

The Gangster Celop actress said the shooting time is limited to five hours daily, when Yusuf is playing or doing outdoor activities.

“The reality show only records the activities of Yusuf and Bujibu,” she said.

Yusuf has 2.1 million followers on Instagram while Bujibu has 1.1 million.

On Jan 2, a short clip uploaded to Yusuf’s Instagram account shows him dancing. It went viral with more than three million views.

It also sparked a dance challenge which saw many celebrities and Malaysians copying his moves.

My Little Heroes – Yusuf & Bujibu will air every Wednesday from Jan 31 on Astro Ria.
