This is not the first time Shetty has ventured into television shows for children. Prior to this, Little Singham, inspired by the Bollywood film Singham (starring Devgn), was released on Discovery Kids channel.

The Golmaal franchise, which has four installments, first released in 2006. The film revolved around the adventures of four friends originally portrayed by Devgn, Kapoor, Warsi and Sharman Joshi. Rimi Sen played the female lead. This was followed by a sequel Golmaal Returns with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Golmaal 3. In 2017, Golmaal Again, which also had Parineeti Chopra and Tabu as part of the cast, was released in 2017 and was one of the highest grossing films of the year. A fifth part is also reportedly in the pipeline.
