The Indian government decided to lockdown the country for 21 days starting March 25 in order to control the transmission of coronavirus as the disease is contagious in nature. The cinema halls, schools, colleges, gyms, swimming pools, etc. were already closed and the sport events were also cancelled or postponed in order to avoid gathering of public in huge numbers.
As everyone was compelled to sit at home to save themselves from the virus, many people demanded the government to broadcast Ramayana and Mahabharat once again. The government led by PM Modi was also quick to respond and from 28th March, not just Ramayana and Mahabharat but detective serial Byomkesh Bakshi was also broadcasted.
Soon Shah Rukh Khan starrer Circus also came on television and now as per the reports, one of the most favourite shows of 90s, the superhero serial Shaktimaan will also be back on our TV screens.
Mukesh Khanna starrer show was watched by not just kids but people from every walk of life. Moreover, Shaktimaan is the first superhero of the Indian television and it has a special place in the hearts of the kids of 90s.
The Indian Twitterati couldn’t keep calm after knowing that their favourite superhero will be back and this is how fans reacted to the good news:
Ab Bacchon ko bhi pata chalega ki
"Gangadhar hi Shaktimaan hai"!
