In a first of its kind venture, Cartoon Network’s sister channel – Pogo has partnered with the upcoming Bollywood movie Kick – directed & produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, to create a special TV appearance with Salman Khan and Chhota Bheem. This unique Jodi will air on 27 July at 12:00 pm as Bheem aur Salman ki Kick on the channel.
The channel has decided to play a 90 minute special presentation which will allow viewers to see an action-packed combination of Salman Khan’s tricks and never-seen-before episodes of Chhota Bheem. Audiences will be entertained by both superheroes sharing anecdotes on defeating villains and displaying some super cool moves.
Salman had some candid confessions to make about Chhota Bheem. “Mere bare mein itna mat sochna, dil mein aata hu, samajh mein nahin. Lekin Chhota Bheem toh dil mein bhi aata hai aur samajh mein bhi,” he said.
“Villain Bheem ke peeche, Bheem villain ke peeche”, Salman chuckled at this remembering his dialogue from the film and exclaimed, “Too much fun!”
“At Turner, we believe in engaging our audiences by delivering unique and entertaining content. This one of a kind partnership between Pogo and Kick will bring together India’s most beloved heroes – Salman Khan and Chhota Bheem! We couldn’t be more excited at the promising success of this initiative,” said Turner International India, executive director & network head – kids, south Asia, Kishna Desai.
