Salman Khan's Dabangg-The Animated Series on Disney+Hotstar

The series is latest addition to Disney+Hotstar's collection of kids’ titles.


Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan's iconic character Chulbul Pandey in the Dabangg franchise has now made its grand return to the television screen with Dabangg-The Animated series. The first eight episodes of this animated series are now available for streaming on Disney+Hotstar VIP, in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi. 

An adaptation and reimagination of the blockbuster Bollywood franchise, the action-comedy series chronicles the day-to-day life of police officer Chulbul Pandey, who faces up to evil to keep the city safe. Pandey is now joined by his younger brother Makkhi, also a police officer.  

Produced by Cosmos-Maya and Arbaaz Khan Productions, Dabangg - The Animated Series marks the latest addition in an extensive collection of kids’ content that ranges from all-time favourites like Toy Story, Doraemon, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Sound of Music, to contemporary super hits including, Selfie With Bajrangi, Chacha Chaudhary and Sofia the First. 

To ensure a safe, entertaining, and controlled experience, parents can navigate through the platform’s unique kids-safe mode to access age-appropriate content. 

Speaking about the return of Chulbul Pandey, Salman Khan said, "I couldn’t be happier that Chulbul, Makkhi, and Rajjo are returning in animated avatars to entertain the children of our country. I cannot wait to binge-watch all episodes of Dabangg - The Animated Series with my nieces and nephews while at home. Animation has opened up yet another dimension for this character and I'm thrilled Cosmos-Maya did that. I hope that all children, along with their families, take time out and enjoy watching this together." 

"Dabangg, for me, goes beyond just a film or a franchise; and to see it coming to life in an all-new format is overwhelming and we were on board with the idea, the moment we met team Cosmos-Maya. They have revolutionized Indian animation & I couldn't have asked for a better animation studio partner for our Dabangg. I’m happy to have collaborated with Disney+ Hotstar VIP to bring kids and their parents all episodes of this fun and entertaining series that they can watch at their convenience, from the safety of their homes," said Dabangg producer Arbaaz Khan. 

"Audiences of all ages love Salman Khan, and we’re delighted to be bringing his iconic character and movie in a form that can be enjoyed by kids and their families. Time spent indoors can be made entertaining with this latest series along with engaging offerings like the new season of the popular show, Selfie with Bajrangi, successful Disney titles and much more. We have had a wonderful collaboration with Cosmos-Maya and are happy to further build this with a blockbuster Bollywood franchise reimagined in a creative yet entertaining manner," said the Disney spokesperson. 

Cosmos-Maya CEO Anish Mehta said, Dabangg is a landmark IP launch for Cosmos-Maya as it marks the 10th year of original Indian IP creation. "We are privileged to have such an iconic franchise which fits in the Cosmos-Maya formula of 'familiarity with novelty'. We couldn't have asked for a bigger & better character for our 20th show, than my personal favourite, the cult icon Chulbul Pandey who has been immortalized by Salman Khan, while working beside Arbaaz Khan and a fabulous platform partner like Disney+ Hotstar VIP," he said.
