POGO celebrates Chhota Bheem's birthday with Amritsar kids
It’s that time of the year when kids get to celebrate the birthday of their favourite laddoo-eating superhero – Chhota Bheem! In addition to all the on-air and online hoopla, this year, Chhota Bheem is making his birthday extra special by celebrating it with some of India’s less fortunate kids.
Chhota Bheem and POGO pulled out all the stops to give the kids of Nanhi Chhaan Foundation, Amritsar, the time of their lives. The event organized at DAV Public School saw over 180 kids assemble enthusiastically to celebrate Chhota Bheem’s birthday. The kids were elated throughout the whole event from watching some of the best episodes of Chhota Bheem, to playing games, to receiving ample POGO goodies from Chhota Bheem!
The highlight of the day was the special act put together by Chhota Bheem in which he called a few lucky kids to perform with him. The event climaxed with the kids cutting Chhota Bheem’s birthday cake, singing happy birthday for him and receiving photographs with their superhero.
When asked, every kid replied enthusiastically, that Chhota Bheem is their favourite superhero and this was the best birthday party they had ever attended!
Monica Tata, General Manager, Entertainment Networks, South Asia, Turner International India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Chhota Bheem’s birthday celebration is the biggest event in the year for POGO and kids across India. This year, by associating with an NGO like Nanhi Chhaan Foundation it brings us great joy to see the faces of these kids light up when they meet their idol. We hope to continue to entertain and excite our loyal audiences in future and keep them smiling through various activities and events.”
“Chhota Bheem is an idol for children across the country and especially the children of Nanhi Chhaan. We aim to instil some of the values that Chhota Bheem personifies in our children as well including bravery, honestly, humility and helpfulness. We are delighted that Nanhi Chhaan has been host to Chhota Bheem’s Birthday in Amritsar”, said Mr. Harpal Singh, Chairman Emeritus of Fortis Healthcare Ltd, Nanhi Chhaan Foundation and Save the Children India.
The event was also graced by the presence of Mrs. Ritu Aggarwal, wife of District Commissioner – Mr. Rajat Aggarwal and their 2 children. The birthday celebration not only brought smiles to the face of every kid but also gave them a memory to cherish for the rest of their lives!
