The web original, a Christmas offering from the Telugu OTT platform aha, is directed by Rajiv Chilaka of Green Gold Animation
Telugu OTT platform aha is coming with a special web show for kids for the Christmas weekend titled Christmas Thatha. To release on December 24 on aha, Christmas Thatha is directed and produced by Rajiv Chilaka of Green Gold Animation, the creators of Chhota Bheem, Mighty Raju and Mighty Little Bheem. This is an extension to kids-specific originals on the platform that took off with Maha Ganesha, commemorating Ganesh Chathurthi.
Christmas Thatha gives a regional spin to Santa along with characters like Mighty Raju, Vignesh, and others, the platform had announced a few days ago. aha has released a series of posters announcing its release, including one where a character named Lovely Singh is coming all the way running to catch Anthony, joining Mighty Raju and Vignesh.
A special, catchy number from Christmas Thatha was also released on Wednesday, offering a sneakpeek into the show and its ambience. In its attempt to draw more eyeballs, aha is permitting all viewers to watch Christmas Thatha free of cost (without any need for subscription) from December 24. This is certainly a welcome move that could fetch a new section of subscribers to the platform.
Green Gold Animation is a brand that needs little or no introduction in the animation industry and the popularity for their kid-friendly characters has only grown year after year. It'll definitely be a new challenge for the brand to pull off Telugu content on the occasion of Christmas. Christmas Thatha will premiere on aha at 8 pm, December 24.
