Cartoon Network is set to entertain its fans in India with its latest action-comedy Dabangg – The Animated Series, starting May 31st, every day at 12pm. The series (104 HHs) stars the fearless super-cop Chulbul Pandey and is one of the first animated series to retain the original version of a popular Bollywood character rather than reimagine the star as a kid.
The WarnerMedia and Cosmos-Maya collaboration follows on from the resounding success of other homegrown comedies Titoo – Har Jawaab Ka Sawaal Hu and Lambu-G Tingu-G on companion channel POGO.
Abhishek Dutta, South Asia Network Head for Cartoon Network and POGO, said, “Both kids and their families are just going to love this! Our new animated action-comedy is just so much fun and stars the character Chulbul Pandey – the quirkiest cop in town. It’s been great to work with Cosmos-Maya for yet another highly-promising project.”
The producer of the Dabangg movies and Bollywood actor, Arbaaz Khan, added: “We are thrilled to work with Cartoon Network and Cosmos-Maya to bring kids their favourite action-packed Bollywood franchise in an animated avatar. It has been a fun ride to create new narratives with Chulbul Pandey, who the country has come to know and love. We cannot wait for little fans and their parents, to meet the animated version of the quirky and amazing Chulbul Pandey on Cartoon Network!”
