With an eye to maximise revenues, Colour Chips also has plans to get into merchandising activity as it has the mandate to licence for this purpose the series characters.

Pointing out that the merchandising activities would be kicked off after the telecast of the 2D series over ETV Network, Suryanarayana explained, "Although the process of merchandising is at a nascent stage in India, unlike foreign countries, we do see Pokemon and other cartoon charcaters doing well after being marketed well. So, there is some scope.”

Attempts by to contact senior executives in ETV Network regarding the developments proved futile till the time of filing this report.
