Dabangg animated series to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar

Animation company, Cosmos-Maya, in collaboration with Arbaaz Khan Productions has revealed a new animated series based on Salman Khan’s highly successful Dabangg franchise.

It will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar in the summer of 2021 and will have 104 episodes available on release. According to reports, the series will have animated versions of all characters from the three films. This announcement comes in sync with the 10th anniversary of the release of the first Dabangg film.

Anish Mehta, CEO of Cosmos-Maya said:

”With Dabangg, we are venturing into untapped space in the Indian animation market in a narrative format that provides audiences with familiarity and novelty. With this project, Cosmos-Maya will enter a new market space where we get to give our spin to brand extensions of well-loved mainstream film franchises and characters, and will surely pave the way for a lot more prospects of a similar nature in the future, a plan which is already in motion with projects in partnership with 3 major Bollywood franchises planned for 2021.

We are glad to have found a long-term business partner Disney+ Hotstar who started our relationship by onboarding 234 half-hour episodes of our immensely popular title Selfie With Bajrangi.” 

Actor and producer Arbaaz Khan said:

“It is great to have Cosmos-Maya on-board for bringing Chulbul into a fresh format. They understand the universe of Dabangg and we’re confident in the way they’ll get our characters to translate into a colourful format. It is a really exciting time for us and we can’t wait to see kids give the same ‘swaagat’ to Chulbul and his posse as audiences have done over the past decade.”
