It’s often said, intelligence is no child’s play, but when innocent kids put their genius brains to test, the results have often been spectacular. Something similar was experienced on India’s one stop destination for Humor- BIG MAGIC’s mini- series Chota Birbal. After a long hunt, the tryst for the wittiest kid comes to an end. The wise minister, Birbal played by popular television actor Vishal Kotian crowned television’s most favorite child artist Harshita Ojha as ‘Chota Birbal’.
This incredible journey that began two weeks ago with 10 smart kids had reached its finale with four deserving kids. Competing for the respectful crown of ‘Chota Birbal’, all the finalists went through grueling riddles, tricky questions and proverbs that not only judged their wittiness but also their mental tenacity. Battling out the competition, child artist Harshita Ojha triumphed beating her co-contestants, Arshifa Khan, Sneh Mirani and Emmanual.
Commenting on her win, child artist Harshita Ojha said, “It feels good and special on winning the crown of Chota Birbal. The entire series has been a great learning experience and I have made some really good friends on the show. For me it’s a moment of pride, as Birbal is known for his wisdom similarly I can boost about being like him.”
Talking about his journey, Vishal Kotian said, “Chota birbal has been an amazing experience to host. For me working with kids has been extremely memorable, I too had my share of learning. It’s amazing to see such young talent and street smartness in them. Particularly, Harshita was consistent throughout the series which obviously made her the first choice for the crown.’’
The episodic ‘Chota Birbal’ has been conceptualized as an extension to the Historical Comedy ‘Har Mushkil Ka Hal - Akbar Birbal’. The series began with a small enactment of the almighty Akbar, who throws a challenge to his witty minister, Birbal to find a kid equivalent to his intelligence. Resulting out of the challenge, Chota Birbal is a special series that not only tickled the funny bones of the audience but also put kids’ logic to test. All the contestants on the show were below 9 years of age and in the finale week; four contestants contested against each other to win the most respectful title of ‘Chota Birbal’.
