Cartoon Network is set to launch the Bollywood-inspired action-comedy Dabangg—The Animated Series in India later this month.
The series follows fearless super-cop Chulbul Pandey, becoming one of the first animated series to retain the original version of a Bollywood character rather than reimagine the star as a child. Dabangg—The Animated Series will bow on Cartoon Network India on May 31.
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.”
Arbaaz Khan, producer of the Dabangg movies and Bollywood actor, added: “We are thrilled to work with Cartoon Network and Cosmos-Maya to bring kids their favorite 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!”
