Rohit Shetty Picturez, Reliance Animation and Discovery Kids are all set to launch a new animation series called ‘Little Singham’, which is inspired by the Ajay Devgn starring superhit franchise ‘Singham’.
‘Little Singham,’ an original kid’s content series in India, will be aired in April 2018 on the completely revamped Discovery Kids channel in four languages – English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
It is said to be one of the largest deal in the animation industry with the first season to go on air with 156 episodes and five tele features.
Uttam Pal Singh, Head, Discovery Kids, Discovery Communications India, said, “Little Singham, the original make-in-India super hero series, is a very bold and at scale attempt by Discovery Kids. We are delighted that Rohit Shetty is personally involved in promoting Little Singham. This will help us reach out to kids across the country.”
Shetty said, “Singham was hugely loved by the kids and a show like this will not only take the franchise ahead but will also become a source of entertainment for the kids and audiences who love Singham so dearly.”
Shibasish Sarkar of Reliance Entertainment, said, “Little Singham will set a completely new benchmark for animation in India. With Rohit also mentoring the animated series, we are confident of taking the Singham franchise to newer heights.”
