The superhero for every 90’s kid Shaktimaan, is all set to roll up again on the small screen. Television actor Mukesh Khanna has expressed his desire to once again bring back the most loved show of its times.
While interacting with the media after inaugurating his website and unveiling the wax statue of Shaktimaan, actor Mukesh Khanna said, “Last week I attended two school functions where I got immense love and kids were hooting loudly for me as ‘Shaktiman’. Therefore, I feel the superhero series should be back again and I am trying to bring back the series on small screen. Doordarshan is allowing it but I want satellite channels should come to air the series”.
Adding further to this he said, “Because they think kids movies won’t be able to make money. In India, kids film travel only in the festivals. So this year I am allowing those films which have an entertainment value and have the capability to release in the theaters to make money”.
When asked about freedom of expression he said, “In the name of freedom, those who are diverting our children’s mind… I strongly condemn their speech”.
