This article presents the two-dimensional MHD flow of tangent hyperbolic fluid with zero normal flux of nano-particles over an exponentially stretching sheet in presence of thermal radiation. The governing system of non-linear partial differential equations along with boundary conditions for this fluid flow is converted into a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations by using appropriate similarity transformations. The reduced system is numerically solved by Runge-Kutta fourth order method with shooting technique. The effects of emerging non-dimensional parameters on velocity, temperature and nanoparticle volume fraction profiles have been discussed and presented graphically. Furthermore, the impacts of these parameters on skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number at the sheet are exhibited and discussed. Noticed that the thermal boundary layer thickness enhanced with the increase in Weissenberg number, power-law index and radiation parameter whereas the velocity profiles and the skin friction coefficient decreases with an increase in Weissenberg number and power-law index.
