To take famous Bollywood franchise ‘Fukrey’ to kids with ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’
Get ready for a laughter riot with quirky animated characters of Hunny, Choocha, Laali and Bholi Punjaban
Discovery Kids, the leading kids’ channel from Discovery India, which revolutionized the Indian animation industry with ‘Little Singham’ – an animation series inspired by India’s most successful Supercop brand ‘Singham’ – is all set to up the ante with the introduction of fun filled animated series ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’ based on superhit Bollywood franchise ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Fukrey Returns’.
Excel Entertainment’s movie Fukrey, a fun-filled comic caper with quirky characters, captured the imagination of the audiences. Fukery Boyzzz is all set to take the fun and quirk quotient higher with the animated avatars of Hunny, Choocha, Laali and Bholi Punjaban along with all other characters in the movie. Fukrey Boyzzz will be launched in 6 languages, English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada only on the Discovery Kids Channel.
“For the first time ever, Excel Entertainment will be extending itself to developing content for kids with Fukrey Boyzzz. This is a huge step forward for us and brings with it, its own sense of accomplishment,” said, Ritesh Sidhwani, Co-Founder, Excel Entertainment. “The nuances of Kids TV are very different from that of cinema; it requires adapting characters, their scenarios in a different yet relatable setting. However, the good part is that the plot and characters of the movie Fukrey lend themselves beautifully to interpretation in animation. Fukrey Boyzzz will take you on an endless laugh riot!”
“We are confident ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’ will be our next big disrupter in the Kids genre. The Indian animation industry has done extremely well over the last year and has delivered great IPs however almost all of them are targeted at children ranging from 4-8 years. Fukrey Boyzzz is based on friendship, massti and slice of fukrapanti with quirky characters, it has the potential to expand our audience base beyond kids with parents watching the show along with them and sharing a great laugh together,” said, Uttam Pal Singh, Business Head - Discovery Kids. “We will work with Excel entertainment to skin the full potential of this IP in the most impactful manner.”
