iRealities Entertainment makes ‘Sheikh Chilli and Friendz’ for Discovery Kids

MUMBAI: iRealities Entertainment has partnered Apson Entertainment to make ‘Sheikh Chilli and Friendz’. The show will air on Discovery Kids.

The series is loosely based on ‘Sheikh Chilli’s comic legend from Lotpot, the comic magazine from Mayapuri Group.

‘Sheikh Chilli and Friendz’ is about a kind-hearted simpleton, Sheikh Chilli, and his adventures with his friends. It all begins one day when Sheikh Chilli stumbles upon a genie. It is that day when life changes and becomes full of adventures for him and his friends.

There are several primary characters in the film like Sheikh Chilli, the talking donkey, genie, witch and her talking broom and many more. The characters are based in the modern world and are well equipped with technology so that kids of this generation can connect to it. The script has been worked and reworked by some eminent writers and filmmakers of the film industry.

Said iRealities CEO Prasad Ajgaonkar, “Today’s kids are very different from the way you and I grew up. They are far more inquisitive and challenge the norms. They are independent young individuals that demand to be entertained and enjoy newness all the time. We have worked very cautiously and precisely, to shape up and create each character and make it likeable and relatable to this new generation. There is absolutely no compromise in terms of quality. We have used hair, fur and minute texturing to bring out the feel of each character in a strong way so that the whole look is quite distinct then the usual content being broadcast on TV.”

Earlier, iRealities had created an animation movie of the same name that had been released in Hindi and Tamil. The company had executed the entire project right from scripting, character design, animation production to post production and final creation of the film.

iRealities is currently working on three animated feature films to be released in 2017. One of the projects is the animated film ‘Durga- The Epic’. The company is also collaborating to produce another animation film with reputed director Shoojit Sircar at the directorial helm.

Earlier, iRealities had made the 3D animated movie ‘Chaar Sahibzaade’.
