India’s youngest Supercop, with the intro line – ‘Police ki wardi, Sher ka Damm, Naam hai mera – Little Singham!’ is an apt representation of Discovery Kids’ brand purpose – Super Heropanti. Little Singham will be aired in 4 languages – English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.

The Little Singham IP, undoubtedly our biggest bet till date in the kids’ segment in India, has been shortlisted basis positive feedback in the consumer research. We are confident that along with a world class animation partner like Reliance Animation, we will be able to produce masala faceted series rooted in action, adventure and comedy that will attract the attention of kids in India. In addition, concerted efforts are underway to milk the full business potential of the IP in the most impactful manner.”
