Olympic-winning boxer Mary Kom will be seen in an animated avatar on India’s first girl superhero series, titled ‘Mary Kom Jr’, reports Indian Express.

“I think it is time to take more responsibility for the girl child. I want girls to be confident, strong. Parents are usually not keen on fighting games for their girl child but with all the crime going around, their eyes are now open and this will help.”

 

ScreenYug and Aditya Horizons will co-produce the TV series. Producer Ashish S Kulkarni, said:



“We are creating India’s first girl superhero animated series, which will be based on India’s own super sport star Mary Kom. While we have a Manipuri tinge by capturing the fiction life of a young Mary Kom while in school, we will have other characters with a more neutral tone in order to appeal to the global audience.”

 

Kulkarni has created many big-ticket projects like ‘Little Krishna’, ‘Shaktimaan’, ‘Krishna Aur Kans’ and ‘Big Bees’ among others.
