90’s kid’s favourite Indian superhero ‘Shaktiman’ is back

If you grew up in the 1990s, it’s time to relive your youth as Shaktimaan is ready to return, this time on the big screen. Sony Pictures India released the first trailer for the film based on the Indian superhero on Thursday.

The news: The one-minute film begins with a view of the globe, followed by a busy street. “As darkness and evil rule over humanity, it’s time for him to return,” it continues.

  • The Shaktimaan symbol appears shortly after, and we catch a glimpse of our superhero. While Shaktimaan’s face isn’t disclosed, the makers do give a glimpse of the most popular and well-liked superhero. Many action stars on screen wear the attire and physique of the people’s hero.
  • Sony Pictures International Productions, in a statement, shared that they have acquired the film adaptation rights of Shaktimaan to reimagine it as a superhero trilogy for the big screen. The film’s cast has not been announced yet and the director’s name is yet to be finalised.
  • For Shaktiman, the studio has partnered with Brewing Thoughts Private Limited (co founded by ex-film journalist Prashant Singh, and Madhurya Vinay), in association with actor-producer Mukesh Khanna’s Bheeshm International.

Shaktimaan launched in September 1997 on Doordarshan and successfully aired for eight years. It was conceptualised by Mukesh Khanna, who played the titular role, after he saw kids in his family watching superhero shows on the television. Given that the show continues to be loved by fans, the team is positive that the film will heat up the Indian superhero space and become a global success from India.
