Supported by parenting platform, Momspresso, the initiative saw kids and parents share messages in the form of handwritten notes, drawings, and videos, on social media. Bollywood actor Salman Khan who plays Dabangg’s iconic ‘Chulbul Pandey’ and movie producer and actor Arbaaz Khan also encouraged kids to participate through their social media posts.

Notable kids’ academy ABCD Dance Factory also shared their messages in their distinctive artistic style via Instagram Reels, set to the ‘Dabangg – The Animated Series’ title track while prompting its students to follow suit. YouTube Kids sensations Aayu and Pihu also participated via their eponymous show and encouraged their followers too, to join in the conversation.

Speaking on the campaign, South Asia Network Head for Cartoon Network and POGO, Abhishek Dutta said, “#ThankYouForBeingDabangg was launched to collectively pause and appreciate the constant endeavour of the police force during the COVID-19 pandemic. It was heartening to see responses pouring in from every corner of the country, in various ways and multiple languages, like Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, and more. It brings us immense joy to have created this movement and saluting our fearless heroes.” 

Speaking on the initiative DCP, Mumbai S.Chaitanya said, "We are truly grateful for the enormous amount of love we have received from kids across the country through the #ThankYouForBeingDabangg initiative. This was such a thoughtful initiative by Cartoon Network and the creative ways in which the kids thanked us was very touching. We promise to continue being Dabangg for all of you!”

Co-presented by Chocoliebe Eclairs and Cue Learn along with associate sponsor BritanniaTiger Krunch, the animated version of Bollywood’s sensational supercop franchise airs every day at 12 pm, only on Cartoon Network.
