NEW DELHI: The delightful stories of Akbar and Birbal will be aired in an animated series on Discovery Kids from next week.

The tales of famous Emperor Akbar and his trusted adviser Birbal have been passed on from generation to generation, enthralling young and old listeners alike.

The series will take its viewers to the era of Mughals where they will witness amusing exchanges between Akbar and Birbal. Discovery Kids will offer children an experience to cherish for a lifetime.

AKBAR & BIRBAL will start on 10 March and will air everyday at 2.00 pm only on Discovery Kids.

Senior VP and General Manager – South Asia and Head of Revenue, Pan-Regional Ad Sales and Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, Rahul Johri, said, “Discovery Kids would continue to bring engaging content that inspires children to believe in traditional wisdom and also inculcate moral values in them. Expanding our bouquet of indigenous titles, AKBAR & BIRBAL will entertain the viewers with its clever wit and exciting storytelling.”

Birbal, who was a minister in the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, was considered to be one of the best loved figures in the folklore of India. He will be seen outsmarting everyone even the Emperor sometimes by his exceptional wisdom, presence of mind and his excellent problem solving skills.

Birbal’s real name was Mahesh Das. It is believed that he belonged to a poor Brahmin family of Tikawanpur on the bank of the River Yamuna but it was only by virtue of his sharp intellect that he rose to be a minister at the court of Akbar.

Entertainingly narrated in three languages -- English, Hindi and Tamil, the series encourages smooth language development in children and also makes the experience of listening to stories more enjoyable by offering popular stories in a familiar language.

AKBAR & BIRBAL series consists of beautifully animated and captivatingly narrated stories which bring to life traditional wisdom.
