New Delhi: For every kid from the 90s who grew up watching Indian television’s first superhero ‘Shaktiman’, here is a reason to rejoice. 

According to a leading daily, the blockbuster programme is expected to make a comeback on the Indian television after more than 11 years. 

Media reports revealed that producer and actor Mukesh Khanna is in talks to bring the show back again on the small screen.

And to everyone’s surprise, the 57-year old actor will himself play the role of Shaktiman.  

"We are planning the return of Shaktimaan on television and the discussions are going on with few channels. I can't committ the date but you will get to see it soon. I am working on my look and body for it. I have already lost 8 kgs and will be losing another 8 kilos. 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. People relate to me as Shaktimaan and I can't offer the role to anyone," Mukesh Khanna told to a leading daily.  

When asked about why he is not considering a young actor to play the lead role in the TV series, Mukesh Khanna said, "I was very young when I played the role of Bhishmapitama in Mahabharat. I feel an actor can't be restricted due to age. I feel age is just a number. It depends on how you look and if you will be able to pull off the character with full conviction."
