From comic books to a television show and made-for-TV movies; Nickelodeon has grown the Motu Patlu franchise by reaching out to kids and parents through innumerable touch points. Nickelodeon continues to extend the franchise further by uniquely engaging with kids yet again. Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa on COLORS is one of kids’ favourite shows on TV. Thus, Nickelodeon and COLORS have come together to create an innovation that is sure to entertain kids and family audiences. In a novel approach, the popular duo will come out of their home, Furfuri Nagar to partner with the youngest contestant Akshat Singh in an innovative dance act. The animated avatar, choreographed by Vivek Chachere, won hearts of the judges and celebrity contestants on the show.


Nina Elavia Jaipuria, EVP & Business Head, Kids Cluster, Viacom 18 Media Pvt. Ltd. said “The power of One Viacom18 gives us enormous opportunities across screens and beyond within the network. Motu Patlu on COLORS’ Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is one such path breaking and pioneering partnership where both the brands have come together to offer its audiences something that is unique and extremely entertaining at the same time.”

Anu Sikka, SVP, Programming & Scheduling, Kids Cluster, Viacom 18 Media Pvt. Ltd. added, “I have always believed in the strength of our home-grown animated characters especially because of the amount of flexibility that it allows us. Motu Patlu on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa is a perfect example of the magic that can be created through such integrations. I am sure that audiences will enjoy such creations which will encourage us to explore more such opportunities for our viewers and advertisers alike.”


Happy about the integration Manisha Sharma, Weekend Programming Head, COLORS said, “In Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, we push the envelope in terms of showcasing innovative themes and challenging dance routines. What's wonderful about the integration is that it amalgamates live action and animation beautifully. The creatively thought out fusion act that Akshat & Vaishnavi performed with Motu & Patlu was funny and amusing and will be adored by children and adults alike.”
