Chacha Chaudhary comes in 10 Indian languages and has sold close to 10 million copies.
Chacha Chaudhary was also made into a TV series, Raghuvir Yadav playing the lead role of Chacha Chaudhary.
Chacha Chaudhary was created in 1971, yes it has been more than 4 decades now.
When asked about the inspiration for the series, Pran said, “Each family has its own wise old man. He solved his problems with common sense, but with a touch of humor. Humor is the basis of my cartoon.”
You would obviously remember the gentle giant Sabu who came from Jupiter and was shy around girls, and he could eat upto 100 chapattis.
Pran, his website quotes, had said, “If I could put a smile on the face of people, I would consider my life successful.”
