Kids of Zee TV's Chhoti Si Zindagi have a merry time off the camera...

The 20-odd kids who play orphans in Zee TV's Chhoti Si Zindagi seem to be having a whale of a time on the sets of the show, what with a fun play area specially constructed to keep them in good spirits.

Prasad Barve, the actor who plays the role of the friendly cook in the orphanage by the name of 'Calendar', often regales the kids with funny anecdotes and they all play with hula hoops, blow soap bubbles, sit on swings, see-saws, slides and generally have a great time!

J. D. Majethia, producer of the show, said, "With the hectic schedules of shooting, children often get drained, and the best way to keep them happy is to let them do exactly what they are meant to be really doing at their age!"

With such thoughtful care taken, it does not come as a surprise that the children come across as a bundle of livewire energy and boundless joy on the show.

To follow the lives of Isha, Ira and this cute bunch of playful children, stay tuned to Chhoti Si Zindagi at 7 PM every Monday-Friday on Zee TV.
