New Delhi: Rejoice 90s kids! The first Indian TV superhero is all set to make a comeback soon. As per reports of a leading daily, ‘Shaktimaan’ is expected to be back after a hiatus of 11 years.
Media reports said that actor and producer Mukesh Khanna is planning to bring the show back to the small screen. To everyone’s surprise, the 57-year-old is himself going to lead the show as ‘Shaktimaan’.
“We are planning the return of Shaktimaan on television and the discussions are going on with few channels. I can’t commit the date but you will get to see it soon. I am working on my look and body for it. I have already lost 8 kgs and will be losing another 8 kilos. I am not trying to get six pack abs. I want to try and match up with the look that I had 15 years back. People relate to me as Shaktimaan and I can’t offer the role to anyone,” Mukesh Khanna told a leading newspaper.
On being asked that why he is not considering any young actor for the role, the superhero said that, “I feel an actor can’t be restricted due to age. I feel age is just a number. It depends on how you look and if you will be able to pull off the character with full conviction.”
Time to say ‘Sorry Shaktimaan’ again!
