Sony Pictures India, on Thursday, announced it will back the film adaptation of Mukesh Khanna-starrer TV show ‘Shaktimaan’. “After the super success of our many superhero films in India and all over the globe, it’s time for our desi Superhero,” a tweet read on the official Twitter page of Sony Pictures India.
The announcement was made via video, teasing Gangadhar’s iconic specs, his camera and finally the big reveal: the costume of Shaktimaan.
According to the makers, the film will be headlined by “one of India’s superstars”. (
