“It’s crucial to develop the show without altering the characters.” says esteemed Motu Patlu Writer Neeraj Vikram
Writers have frequently asserted that solitude is their friend. It provides their creativity with the tranquility and space it needs to flourish. And when it comes to the animation industry, you always need to go beyond the box of imagination because animated series always aim to offer knowledge, a strong message, and entertainment all in one. Motu Patlu, Dabangg, Shiva, Veer the robot Boy and Gattu Battu are some of the most well-known animated cartoon shows that have captivated the cartoon industry, which has recently evolved into the ultimate medium for artistic expression.
We always chase people who are on camera and praise their talent, but the real heroes are those who are behind the cameras, because of their devotion and hard work, who try to bring out the best for their viewers, and who infatuate the viewers with their writing. One such talented person is Niraj Vikram, the guy behind the storylines of India’s most well-known animated show Motu Patlu, who works round-the-clock to connect with the children to bring the finest stories to life.
In expressing his thoughts, Neeraj Vikram says, “It’s crucial to develop the show without altering the characters. Since the majority of us have previously read the comic and felt a connection to the characters, I first and still feel that it is a heavy obligation. The mannerisms, routines, and patterns of the characters are thus the first considerations I make when writing for this show.”
