The superhero movies are loved by almost every movie lover and in the recent times, Hollywood has come up with many superhero films which performed pretty well on the Indian box-office as well. Bollywood hasn’t tried much when it comes to making superhero movies and few superheroes who have been created by B-Town moviemakers have not been liked by audiences much, except “Krrish”, the character played by Hrithik Roshan that has been able to impress viewers to a large extent.
However if you are a 90s kid, you must be aware of India’s first superhero Shaktimaan, the character that was portrayed by actor Mukesh Khanna. The serial was first aired on Doordarshan in the year 1997 and 450 episodes were telecasted as the show ran for around 8 years. The star cast included some big names of that time such as Kitu Gidwani, Vaishnavi, Surendra Pal and Tom Alter. The name of the title character was Pandit Gangadhar Vidhyadhar Mayadhar Omkarnath Shastri (Shaktimaan) and he was a newspaper photographer by profession in the serial.
Now after a long gap, the Indian superhero Shaktimaan is all set to make a comeback but this time on the big screen. The teaser got launched yesterday and the movie is being made by Sony Pictures International Production in association with Brewing Thoughts Pvt. Ltd. and Mukesh Khanna’s Bheeshm International. The company plans to make a trilogy and though there is no information about the star cast, the reports suggest that a superstar will play the lead role.
