The actor revealed that the kids across the country wrote to him to create a new season of the series.
Talking about it, Mukesh Khanna told Mid-day, “Kids across the country write to me, requesting that I create a new season of the series. I know the excitement around the subject hasn’t dwindled. Shaktimaan is the first Indian superhero, after all.
The makers of Krrish had Rs.150 crore [to make the film] and I didn’t, which is why it took so long to develop the plan. Now, everything is slowly falling in place. The project should have rolled by now, but the pandemic disrupted our plans.”
To play the character of Shaktimaan actor Mukesh Khaana is in talks with the young kid but he refused to reveal his name. He said, “I can’t reveal who we are considering to play the new Shaktimaan. The final announcement will happen when the deal is sealed. Shaktimaan has to be bigger than Krrish and RaOne. It has to be an Indian franchise with international standards,”.
The creative producers will be Mukesh Khanna and Dinker Jani, they are still finalizing the director.
He further said, “We will work with our old team, too. The story spans from the Mahabharata till today. Our Satya Guru [Shaktimaan’s original avatar] is 5,000 years old. Shaktimaan is made with paanchbhoota [the five elements of cosmic creation]. We’ve started building the modern story on the concept where a young timid boy goes on to become invincible”.
