Q. How involved were you in the Dabangg Animated Series for OTT?
A. I was involved in the production of the series as kids content is one of the toughest content because it’s not easy to get a thumbs up from the kids as they are the best critic and speak from the heart, Along with my team and Cosmos-Maya studios I was involved in the pre and post-production of the series
Q. Are you an OTT buff? If yes, what’s keeping you busy these days?
A. Yes I do watch content on OTT platforms and enjoy it immensely. Of Late, the days have been passing with a lot of fun activities indoors with the kids when they’re home and thinking of what next exciting episode we can create for Dabangg – the animated series for Disney+ Hotstar VIP!
Q. Dabangg is a special one for you. Have you thought of making a similar franchise for a digital audience?
A. Yes it is special – and yes, I’ve been keeping this idea on the back of mind forever. Chulbul is a classic character, kids love characters who make a difference – Shinchan, Doremon, Moana – all these characters have struck a chord with children and with Chulbul being so loved across age groups – we thought, why not? who doesn’t love a cop who can swing some classy moves!
