"Turner has consistently set benchmarks in the kids' genre and Pogo and Cartoon Network are leaders in the genre. We aim to do the same yet again with 'Kid Krrish'," Krishna Desai, Turner International India Senior Director & Network Head (Kids) South Asia, told reporters here.

'Krrish 3' is expected to hit the silver screen in November this year.

Launched in India in 1995, Cartoon Network reaches more than 33 million viewers.

"Movies are an important part of the content at Cartoon Network, and we try and bring content that is both educating and entertaining. With kids one has to be careful of what is shown and a lot of research goes into getting the show in

place," he added.

Desai said the channel is also trying to commission more original local programming.
