Mumbai: ‘Shaktimaan’ fans rejoice, the much loved Indian Superhero is returning to the small screen very soon.
Actor Mukesh Khanna is in the process of reviving the show and is in talks with various channels. Speaking to a leading daily, the actor says “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.”
The actor has also started to work on his looks and has already lost 8 kgs. Khanna says, “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.”
Clearly, we’d be seeing Khanna essay the role that made him a household name. According to the actor people relate to him as ‘Shaktimaan’, thus he can’t offer the role to anyone else.
“I was very young when I played the role of Bhishmapitama in Mahabharat. I feel an actor can’t be restricted due to age.”
The actor feels that age is just a number and if you are able to pull off the character with full conviction, he should go for it.
