India’s favourite laddoo loving superhero, Chhota Bheem is the country’s most beloved cartoon character and the apparel, toys, games, comic books, stationery and other merchandise is a testimony to the Chhota Bheem’s popularity.
This winter, Chhota Bheem will be seen in a completely new and stylish avatar in Chhota Bheem – Himalayan Adventure, the official trailer for which was recently released.
The story line follows Bheem to the snow capped Himalayan Mountains where he will not only enjoy some snow filled adventures but also take on the evil dacoit, Hidimbak. In keeping with the plot of the film, Chhota Bheem’s character was given a stylish new look and a lot of research went into this. The team who worked on the film even visited the Himalayas to study local customs and traditions in order to breathe life into the script.
Talking about the new look, Hyderabad based, Rajiv Chilaka, CEO, Green Gold Animation and the creator of Chhota Bheem said, “Children have a strong sense of loyalty to their preferences. Bheem is their trusted companion so any form of experiment with the character needs days of planning and research. We stuck to the colour scheme, which is earthy but gave Chhota Bheem a new look that fits his mountainous journey. He will be seen wearing warm clothes, jackets, breeches, caps, skiing goggles, and off course his skiing gear. We took more than a year of research and back end development to arrive at this look along with the storyline”.
Not only will Bheem’s friends, Chutki, Raju, Jaggu, Kalia, Dholu and Bholu join him on this Himalayan Adventure but they will also have their own jacket, scarf and warm mitten clad looks.
Talking about the new film, Samir Jain, producer added, “Bheem is our star character and anything around him becomes very special for us. It also means more hard work where we have to continually reinvent and challenge ourselves. We wanted to come up with a film with a winter theme. This is a holiday and festive season so we really wanted to scale up Bheem’s adventures to give our audiences something fresh. The setting is perfect and now we can’t wait for the film to release”.
Audiences can watch Chhota Bheem in an action packed and thrilling mountain adventure when Chhota Bheem Himalayan Adventure releases on January 8th, 2016.
