With a dearth in live entertainment genres for children, the timely coming together of Green Gold Animation and Simply Green Innovations really helped to turn this reel-life Chhota Bheem into a real-life theatrical production making it a national trend. Chhota Bheem in Jadooi Adventure has all the makings of a Bollywood blockbuster! For the very first time, kids will see Chhota Bheem and his friends as live characters, singing and dancing to foot-tapping peppy songs. This live extravaganza has been created for the entire family to enjoy and experience a whole new different world of entertainment.”
