“At The Q, our belief that youth entertainment can also be family-inclusive and fun for all is further strengthened with the increasing viewership we are witnessing," said the programming head, Tanya Shukla.

These light-hearted stories with their young protagonists will surely win our viewers' hearts in India. Our commitment to infuse the Indian homes with exciting content that is fresh and a little different will continue.”
