‘The New Adventures of Hanuman’ is about Maruti, an ordinary boy in a small sleepy town called Pawanpur. Maruti’s life is changed when he discovers a ‘Mace’ locket which fell from the skies. Since it originally belongs to Lord Hanuman, it turns Maruti into Bal Hanuman and he uses his super powers to vanquish evil and protect the innocent. New season of ‘The New Adventures of Hanuman’ is on air on Pogo.
“Promoting India’s rich story telling heritage and acquiring Indian animation is part of our Desi Toons strategy. Across India Bal Hanuman is adored by kids and adults alike and now the new animated series, ‘The New Adventures Of Hanuman’ on POGO offers another great reason for families to spend quality time together.
