Programming

Original series

Original television series produced for the channel include:[3]

  • Guru Aur Bhole: An animated musical comedy about best friend Guru and Bhole, who uses the former’s magic music and the latter’s dance powers to escape sticky situations. Each episode features an original song performed by Amit Kumar and written by Lyricist Sameer Anjaan.
  • Sab Jholmaal Hai: A madcap comedy centered on an odd group of pets – two mischievous cats, a talking parrot and a high-strung watchdog – who get into trouble when their human is away.
