“Taarak Mehta Kka Chhota Chashmah has seen a successful journey on Sony YAY! To see it become widely popular among children has been absolutely special. Following the massive success and huge fan-following of the first two seasons, we wanted kids to enjoy the show’s enigmatic characters in a larger format with the release of the first telemovie.”

Asit Kumarr Modi, founder and managing director of Neela Film Productions states, “Over the past 14 years, TMKOC has become one of the most loved shows.

With the third season on the anvil, our commitment to providing seamless entertainment and exploring more options to portray our characters to our viewers has only grown deeper."
