Big Bada Boom on Disney Channel

As the holiday season approaches, children just break free and enjoy their holidays. Keeping this holiday season in mind, Disney Channel, leading children’s entertainment channel in India has come up with a new show for kids titled “Big Bada Boom”. This show will be anchored by 4 anchors. However there is a twist here. You all are use to the regular anchors. However one of the anchor is a Puppet Character called “Bumpy”. And this character will be maneuvered by Satyajit Padhye, Ventriloquist and Puppeteer who shot to fame after his performance in India’s Got Talent, a reality show.

Satyajit Padhye got interested in this art of puppetry from childhood. Satyajit Padhye is a Chartered Accountant, but is now taken up Ventriloquism and Puppetry as his career.Being son of famous Ventriloquist and Puppeteer Ramdas Padhye, Satyajit regularly use to accompany his dad in every show. Speaking more on this show Satyajit said “Doing this show is absolutely wonderful. As for the first time, I will be operating the puppet and will not be performing as a Ventriloquist.” The director of the show David Polycarp and the writer came up with the idea of using a puppet as an anchor on the show.

Satyajit said “The name of the puppet is Bumpy.Bumpy is a very cool character with lot of attitude.So children will definitely like him. He also plays lot of pranks on the show by calling different celebrities on the phone.Also the voice of this character will be given by me.In fact it was challenging to give the voice as well as operating the puppet at the same time. But I am having a blast on the sets.Everybody on the sets is enjoying working with Bumpy.”
