Excited at his first television venture for kids, Darsheel, says, "Like my friends, even I get quite bored in the afternoons during vacation as we can’t go out and play and there is nothing much to do at home.

The programming line up for the month consists of Blockbusters like Phir Hera Pheri, Fun2sh, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Ishq, Vaah Life Ho To Aisi, Geroge Of The Jungle, Makdee, Tarzan The Wonder Car, Pyare Mohan and many more.

Darsheel is very popular amongst kids and serves as a role model for a lot of them. We are happy to associate our summer special festival with him. I am sure the contest will receive overwhelming response from kids and we look forward to bringing in many more such interesting concepts for our viewers."
