Chennai: Filmmaker and serial entrepreneur Prakash Dantuluri, known for Telugu films such as ‘Satyabhama’ and ‘Om Shanti’, has announced the launch of Tuk-Tuk in Mumbai, a kids-travel app for pre-school children.
The app is the latest addition to Dantuluri’s company Bulbul Applications, a fun-filled learning library developed with a vision to provide clean, ad-free content to children between six and nine years old.
According to him, Bulbul provides apps that are interactive and encourages child’s curiosity, reading and learning skills.
“As an artist, film maker and story teller myself, I view a story as a recipe of visuals, sound and effects. I wanted to create the big screen experience for children in their little hands with a repository of short, easy to install, learn and highly engaging content,” Dantuluri told IANS.
“To create this library we collaborated with writers, illustrators, sound effects professionals, background score experts, animations and voice-overs artists from around the world,” he added.
Announcing the details of the content currently available on Bulbul apps library, Prakash said: “Our immediate goal is to focus on known folk and fairy tales. In the next phase, our spotlight will be on native characters and regional content for India. Eventually, we want to replicate this model in many regions of the world”.
Bulbul is a library app and it has 8 categories that encompass folktales, princess stories, Indian mythology, Mowgli and Bulbul, Krishna series and English rhymes.
