Disney Plus Hotstar commissions 234 episodes of its animated kiddie show 'Selfie With Bajrangi'
Disney Plus Hotstar isn't just concentrating on its slate of programming for teenagers, young adults and mature people. It is also keen to enlarge its library of content for kids, more specifically, homegrown content that kids relate within a jiffy. With this aim in mind, Disney Plus Hotstar has ordered 234 episodes of the popular animated kiddie show, 'Selfie With Bajrangi'.
The show, created by Cosmos-Maya, is one of the most popular kiddie shows in India. It aired on TV on Disney Channel and Disney Hungama, before debuting on Disney Plus Hotstar Disney's streaming service, when it launched in India on 4th April.
The 234 episodes that Disney Plus Hotstar has commissioned will stream over three seasons of the popular show on the platform.
The show centres on a young kid Ankush, who befriends a nine-year-old kid called Bajrangi. The unique thing about Bajrangi is that none but Ankush can see him. Ankush's life changes irretrievably upon meeting Bajrangi, who is none other than a child version of Bajrang Bali, better known as Hanuman. The two develop an adorable friendship, which children of all ages love to watch.
The series is created and directed by Dheeraj Berry, while actress Deepa Sahi is one of the producers.
