  Kids channels ensure strong lineup for Diwali season
Posted by: nairrk - 4 minutes ago - Forum: Television News - No Replies

[Image: kids.jpg?itok=ui_Jvg82]

MUMBAI: Kids channels will hope to grab more eyeballs during Diwali, which also happens to be vacation time for most schools.

Since this is the first Diwali for Sony Yay!, which was launched in April this year, the channel has planned a new campaign - ‘Jholmaal Bhari Diwali’, which includes new episodes of shows. On-ground activations include inviting families for the two-hour show of ‘Sab jholmaal hai’ where children are made to play games.

Brand ambassador Tiger Shroff will turn professor on television. Titled ‘Tiger Ki Jholmaal Paatshalla’, he will be teaching lessons to the toons of ‘Sab Jholmaal Hai’. The main presenting sponsor for the campaign is Dabur Red Paste and others like Hersheys, Dominoes Pizza, HUL and Lifebuoy.

Nickelodeon, which garnered first position in BARC’S week 40, is all set to double the celebrations for kids by premiering Motu Patlu in Hong Kong (Kungfu Kings 3) on 19 October at 2.30 pm.

While today’s kids prefer watching cartoons like Doraemon or Shinchan or Chhota Bheem, Discovery Kids will be taking them back to the history of Diwali and Indian culture through animated classics like Ramayan (19 October, 11:00 am) , Mahabharat (20 October at 11 am) and Hanuman (19 October at 1.30 pm) Immortal 2, Pandavas (20 October at 1:30 pm).

Discovery kids channel has used the voice-over of Amitabh Bachchan (Bheeshma), Vidya Balan (Draupadi), Ajay Devgn (Arjun), Sunny Deol (Bheem), Anil Kapoor (Karna) and Jackie Shroff (Duryodhan) in their upcoming mythological shows. Also Manoj Bajpayee, Juhi Chawla, Mukesh Khanna and Anupam Kher and Om Puri have given their voice for the movie - Little Krishna and Krishna aur Kans starting 19 October 2017.

Channels want both children and parents to enjoy the cartoons together and spend quality time. Sony Yay! Business head Leena Lele Dutta affirms that channels do get premium rates during Diwali. However, she denies reports that advertisers have stayed away from TV this season. “Fortunately we have not noticed this. In fact every week we had almost 7-8 brands and 2-3 new clients coming on-board including most FMCG companies and brands targeting kids”, she adds.

There’s another young adult’s all time favourite Disney channel which is making an effort for the children to have a ‘Dhamakedaar Diwali’. Disney India’s kid’s cluster will air the movie Brave and Frozen, while continuing Best of Luck Nikki for families. PJ Masks, a popular animated series, will be aired between Monday and Thursday at 1 pm. For action lovers, Disney XD has planned Pokemon movies, along with the premiere of the movie Darkrai Dost Ya Dushman and a special Marvel Stunt block.

Disney India’s sister channel—Hungama, is also set to celebrate Diwali all week with special episodes of Perman, Friday movie specials and festive packaging to enhance the mood.

MUMBAI: As the league stage of VIVO Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 5 is nearing its end, Star Sports has planned an interactive show with top PKL players this season, all dressed in traditional attire. The show is named as ‘Yeh Diwali, Kabaddi wali’.

The hour long show will air on 19 October at 7:30pm. Viewers can watch Kabaddi stars getting candid and reliving their best moments of Diwali. The show will include rapid fire questions - player picks on Phuljadi player of the league, Dhamakedar player of the league etc., questions on their Diwali celebrations at home and with their teammates.

The players will share their childhood memories of spoiling neighbours' Rangolis and cracker pranks to dreaming big of celebrating Diwali with their role models and favourite stars.

The show host will be VJ Mantra and the players present in the show will be Rohit Kumar (Bengaluru Bulls), Rahul Chaudhari (Telugu Titans), Pardeep Narwal (Patna Pirates), Deepak Nivas Hooda (Puneri Paltan), Suriner Nada (Haryana Steelers), Rishank Devadiga (UP Yoddha).

PKL 5 is promoting the game with many on-ground activations, which includes, ‘Team Up – Lift the Cup’, the mantra for fans, as they took up the Pull Room Challenge, getting first-hand taste of Le Panga. The challenge involved a replica of the Season 5 trophy placed inside a locked chamber which could only be opened when a team of seven individuals, just like in a team, attempt to unlock it.

Taking place at multiple locations across Mumbai and Bangalore, the activation saw scores of kabaddi enthusiasts trying to strategise and come up with innovative ways to accomplish the seemingly difficult task.
