Amar Chitra Katha is now available on Vodafone

Vodafone Essar, in association with ACK Media, has launched Amar Chitra Katha on Vodafone. This association will allow Vodafone customers to enjoy a host of services, available through a voice portal and Vodafone Live!

Through the voice portal, Vodafone subscribers can listen to folk stories from “The Karadi Tales”, audio dramas from “Charkha” and musical tales from “Under the Banyan Tree”. Vodafone customers can also choose to listen to poetry recited by the likes of Naseeruddin Shah, take quizzes and chuckle over jokes from “Tinkle”.

Vodafone Live! provides customers with an opportunity to read entire Amar Chitra Katha comics, listen to popular stories, and download ringtones and wallpapers of their favourite characters.

In addition, Vodafone customers can play mobile games such as Shikari Shambhu Jungle Trouble and Bheema — The Asura Temple from a selection based on various Amar Chitra Katha characters.

Customers have to dial 567607 from their mobile phone to enter the world of Amar Chitra Katha at a subscription charge of Rs. 30 a month. While Vodafone Live! provides access to a lot of free content, customers can also download various services at charges varying from Rs. 5 for Videos to Rs. 15 for ringtones and Rs. 50 for games.
