Cosmos-Maya to unveil ‘Bapu’, a show inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings
Show to spread Gandhiji’s values among children in an entertaining, storytelling format
Cosmos-Maya will be launching ‘Bapu’, a new show inspired by Mahatma Gandhi, for children.
The show comes soon after the 15th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas held recently. 2019 also marks the 150th birth anniversary of the Mahatma.
Founded by filmmakers Ketan Mehta and Deepa Sahi, Cosmos-Maya is a leading India and Singapore based Animation Company that produces 3D & 2D animation content.
KKR backed Emerald Media, a Pan-Asia platform established by the leading global investment firm, for investments in the media and entertainment sector, has a controlling stake in Cosmos-Maya.
Cosmos-Maya has been working on the concept for the past two years. The company aims to not only empower half a billion Indian kids with Gandhiji’s values in a non-didactic format, but also to spread his teachings to children world over with entertaining, child-friendly storytelling.
“Kids are an impressionable audience. Hence, parental approval is imperative. We aim to make each episode a family affair with parents giving additional commentary,” said Anish Mehta, CEO Cosmos-Maya.
Suhas Kadav, Chief Creative Officer, Cosmos-Maya and creator of the show said, “Bapu belongs to everyone and is a perpetual part of the collective conscious of us Indians. Our show will help kids learn the value of goodness and inspire and entertain in the process.”
Anish Mehta, CEO Cosmos-Maya said, “This will be a tribute to the man who had the power to shape the thinking of generations. Cosmos-Maya’s biggest IPs are all Swadeshi. With our production might, we are best equipped as story-tellers in the sense that we can exercise our Creative Social Responsibility and communicate Gandhiji’s teachings in a fun but responsible manner.”
