Shaktimaan Sequel

Due to the lockdown across India owing too cornavirus outbreak, all shooting schedules of film and TV serials have been cancelled. Due to this, no new episode of serials is aired on TV these days. Almost all TV channels are broadcasting repeat episodes of the ongoing serials.

Amid the lockdown, a demand for re-telecast of ‘Ramayan’ by Ramanand Sagar and ‘Mahabharat’ by B R Chopra was raised by a section of audience on the social media. Government acknowledged this request and acted swiftly. Re-telecast of these two ancient epics started on Doordarshan from 28th March 2020.

With Ramayan and Mahabharat, audience have also raised demand for re-telecast of Indian Superhero TV Serial ‘Shaktimaan’. As we all know, Shatimaan is the first Indian superhero who became a household name during late 1990s. It was very popular among kids and had a successful run for 8 long years from 1997 – 2005.

It will be interesting to see whether amid lockdown, Prasar Bharti will re-telecast Shaktimaan just like Ramayan and Mahabharat, or else Shaktimaan fans would have to wait for the sequel which shall be announced only after the coronavirus crisis is over.

As most of you would be aware, along with Ramayan and Mahabharat, two other popular serials of 1990s – Byomkesh Bakshi and Circus (1989-1990) are also being re-telecasted on Doordarshan.
