It won’t be wrong if we said that the iconic character of Shaktimaan played by Mukesh Khanna marked the advent of a superhero fanaticism in India. This show from the 1990s was a cult favorite among its generation and Mukesh Khanna recently announced good news for all those now-grown up kids.
At a recent event. where the actor launched his website and unveiled Shaktimaan’s statue, the actor told IANS:
Mukesh Khanna, Actor Last week I attended two school functions where I got immense love and kids were hooting loudly for me as ‘Shaktimaan’. Therefore, I feel the superhero series should be back again and I am trying to bring back the series on the small screen. Doordarshan is allowing it but I want satellite channels should come forward to air the series.
Doesn’t that bring in a huge dose of enthusiastic nostalgia? If this one’s coming back, the current kiddies will surely get a better and meaningful show to watch. Finally something to move over Chota Bheem!
