Colors is set to launch its new weekend offering ‘Chhote Miyan Dhaakad’, which goes live on Saturday.

Produced by Endemol Shine India, the children’s light-hearted show will be judged by Neha Dhupia and Sohail Khan.

Colors programming head Manisha Sharma said, “At Colors, we have attempted different formats within the comedy genre. This time we decided to let the children take the centerstage and show their alacrity in the art of comedy. Neha and Sohail are great with kids and we found them to be a perfect fit for the show with Bharti guiding them with her enthusiasm as an anchor.”

Endemol Shine India managing director & CEO Deepak Dhar said, “Talent comes in many forms, shapes and sizes. The most appealing one, though, is that which resides in children. ‘Chhote MIyan Dhaakad’ puts together 12 rip-roaringly hilarious children who only strive to entertain the viewers and the judges with their performances. They are the true USP of the show; their unexploited and unadulterated talent forming the foothold for a true-blue family entertainer. With ‘Chhote Miyan Dhaakad’, we hope to create an unparalleled viewing experience which will grab audience attention and bring a smile to their faces every weekend.”

Khan added, “Chhote Miyan Dhaakad goes where no other comedy show has gone in the past; it recognizes the talent of the younger generation and gives them the platform to entertain the entire country with their antics. The rib-tickling moments that these young crusaders have been creating during the course of the shoot makes us believe that they’re the next big thing on television. I am extremely proud to be able to partake in their journey, and commend Colors for putting the spotlight on their comic prowess. These little wonders will spin their magic and take the nation by storm!”
