Recalling the creative days, Green Gold Animation founder and CEO Rajiv Chilaka told AnimationXpress, “It was a great experience working with Netflix. When we got this show, I was scared because we have to match international standards, and we were representing Indian animation. We were a 2D studio venturing into 3D a few years ago. We knew that Mighty Little Bheem was India’s first animated original and if it did well, it’ll be great for the entire industry. So it was challenging for us, to getting the quality work at par with international level, we are very proud of it.”
Mighty Little Bheem is a preschool spin-off based on the much loved kids animated franchise Chhota Bheem. Launched in April (first season) and on 30 August (second season), it soon went on to become the first Indian animated show become a global hit. It has taken the standard of Indian animation at par with its international counterparts, and has also become the second most popular original kids programme to be launched on the platform.

He went on to add that Netflix is eyeing to expand its slate and market in India by investing 400 million in Indian original content .
Well, now it’s time to see if Indian content continues to turn out to be as mighty as our beloved Bheem in the days to come!
