It has the true potential of becoming a turning point for Indian animation industry, in earning the patronage of International buyers.”

Adds Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Sr. VP & GM – Nick India, “Nick’s biggest strength is its endearing characters that have created a lasting bond with kids. We have been looking for the right local animation show over the last 2 years and our search has now ended with Little Krishna. Through naughtiness and magical powers, the series has the potential to engage kids not only through world class animation, but also a compelling narrative. Kudos to BIG Animation, for finally taking the local Indian animation, to international standards. ”
Chanchalapathi Dasa, Vice Chairman, The India Heritage Foundation, says, “Krishna is one of the most enchanting and captivating characters out of the Indian heritage. Our involvement in the research corroborated the authenticity and selection of some of the most interesting stories. The objective was not to develop ‘yet another content’ around Krishna, but to serve the audience with a masterpiece which was historically correct and authentic.
