Get ready to ROFL as Discovery Kids and Excel Entertainment launch the animated comic caper ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’

Dreams can be extremely powerful! But when desi-jugaad is applied to achieve dreams, it could lead to unimaginable chaos! You don’t believe it? Just ask Choocha, Hunny and Laali. Nobody knows more about the power of dreams better than these three!  The friends come together to do some masti which ultimately leads to Fukrapanti. Every time Choocha has an outlandish dream, Hunny tries to make sense of it by putting together an equally outlandish ‘desi jugaad’. While Laali tries to warn them, Bholi Punjaban is always in fray to sabotage the whole plan. But somehow, these motley crew of misfits manage to weasel their way out of trouble and get some good laughs along the way. Fukrey Boyzzz is a rib-tickling production that captures the innocent and harmless masti/mischief of kids. Get ready to ROFL starting October 12th, 2019 at 1.30PM and 7.30PM every day, only on Discovery Kids.

Discovery Kids, the leading kids’ channel from Discovery India, which revolutionized the Indian animation industry with ‘Little Singham’ – an animation series inspired by India’s most successful Supercop brand ‘Singham’, has teamed-up with Excel Entertainment to create this fun-filled laughter-riot based on super hit Bollywood franchise ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Fukrey Returns’.

Present at the launch of ‘Fukrey Boyzzz’ which was held in Mumbai on 25th September to introduce the new animation series, was the lead cast from Excel Entertainment’s movie Fukrey: Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh, film director Mrigdeep Lamba and film writer Vipul Vig.  Excel entertainment’s co-founder, Ritesh Sidhwani, Megha Tata, Managing Director – South Asia, Discovery and Uttam Pal Singh, Head – Discovery Kids were also present on the occasion.

“Fukrey Boyzzz is an apt representation of our ambition in the kids’ genre.  We will continue to innovate and invest heavily in the genre with an aim to be a consistent top 3 player,” said, Megha Tata, Managing Director-South Asia, Discovery. “We are also working towards skinning the Fukrey Boyzzz IP in multiple ways including launching branded merchandise.”

“The launch of Fukrey Boyzzz opens new horizons for us. We are making our foray into animation and are enamored with how this series has shaped-up. I am extremely excited to have characters from our Film Fukrey spread joy to everyone with their crazy antics at school,” said, Ritesh Sidhwani, Co-Founder, Excel Entertainment, as the show preview was unveiled.

Speaking about the show, Uttam Pal Singh, Head – Discovery Kids, said, “We are on a bold and fun journey to invest, invent and innovate our content to endearingly engage with as well as expand our audiences.  In the kids’ genre, there is plethora of content targeted at 4-8 years, however there is a prominent white space for content targeted at pre-teens broadly bracketed between 8-14 years old. With Fukrey Boyzzz and its hilarious ensemble of Choocha, Hunny, Lalli and Bholi, we are launching a new contemporary series which will have a much wider appeal. Infact, we are confident that this innocent fun feast will attract co-viewing – parents watching along with their children.”
