Anurag Thakur unveils ‘Bharat Hain Hum’ animated series trailer


Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur launched the trailer of the enthralling animated series ‘Bharat Hain Hum’ in New Delhi on Wednesday. Speaking about the series, the Union Minister said, “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji. Under his vision, it is our humble endeavour to reignite the nation’s memory and ignite gratitude towards these unsung heroes, who deserve our unwavering admiration and respect. We have very few heroes that the country has celebrated, but there are so many unsung heroes who were not given their due credit in our history. Thirty percent of these heroes are women, and these stories will inspire generations to come.”
“We will do a lot more to ensure students and people of our country get to know about these heroes. We will also screen the series in the parliament so that the members can spread the word in their territories,” he added.
Munjal Shroff and Tilak Shetty, co-creators of the series, passionately assert, “We aim to revive tales of patriotism and the relentless pursuit of freedom, paying tribute to remarkable sacrifices. Our goal is to inspire India’s children and youth, fostering pride in our heritage. Animation is the ideal medium to bring these glorious stories to life and bridge the knowledge gap beyond school textbooks. This entertaining, informative series is designed for all Indians, regardless of age.”
“We are delighted to launch ‘Krish, Trish, and Baltiboy – Bharat Hain Hum’ on Prime Video starting on the 15th of October. A unique initiative, the series will introduce our next generation to the numerous heroes who played an important role in India’s freedom struggle and give young viewers in India and across the world a chance to explore our rich history,” said Sushant Sreeram, the Country Director of Prime Video, India. “We would like to congratulate the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB), the Central Bureau of Communication, and Graphiti Studios for producing this wonderful series. We are excited to be launching the show globally. Customers from the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Canada, and more than 100 countries will be able to watch ‘Krish, Trish, and Baltiboy – Bharat Hain Hum’ on Prime Video. Showcasing local stories that celebrate Indian culture and history was one of the key tenets outlined in the Letter of Engagement between Amazon and MIB, announced earlier this year, and we are glad to take that commitment further with this animated series.”
Launching on Prime Video, Netflix, and Doordarshan, this series is a vital part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, illuminating India’s unsung freedom champions. While celebrated figures like Mahatma Gandhi, Veer Savarkar, and Subhash Chandra Bose are well-known, this show unveils lesser-recognized yet equally instrumental freedom fighters. Icons such as Rani Abbakka, Tilka Manjhi, Tatya Tope, and more will finally receive their due recognition.
Created by Munjal Shroff and Tilak Shetty, the series comprises 26 episodes in Season 1, each lasting 11 minutes. Premiering on October 15 on Doordarshan, Prime Video, and Netflix in 12 Indian and 7 international languages, it features popular characters Krish, Trish, and Baltiboy from the acclaimed KTB Movie series. Produced by the Central Bureau of Communication and Graphiti Studio, the series highlights the unity of India’s diverse faiths and regional freedom fighters.
