Shaktimaan 2 had got the green single from Mukesh Khanna
If you are Indian then you will definitely know about the first Indian Superhero, Shaktimaan. He is the ideal of children. This is the reason that those children how do not drink milk on their mother’s order, drink it after the advice of Shaktimaan on the small session of Choti Choti Magar Moti Baate. In which, he used to teach children how, to be a good citizen of India.
Performance of Shaktimaan
Shaktimaan is one of the most ratings retaining TV series of world. At the time of telecast, it was retaining about 7 or 8 ratings. This was just behind Ramayana and Mahabharata, respectively. The lead actor of this TV series is none other than, Mukesh Khanna.
This was so much hit that the prime minster of India of that time, Dr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, wrote letter to Mukesh Khanna. In that letter, he wrote that Mukesh you are doing good, and you should continue it.
Journey of Mukesh Khanna fom Bhishma Pitamah to Shaktimaan
He became star overnight after his performance of Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharata TV serial of the director, Ravi Chopra and the producer, B.R. Chopra. After this TV series, he got many offers of movies. He got 24 movies out of which he selected only 4.
This shows how choosy he is. He never wants to do any negative roles this is the main reason he is not as famous as other character heroes, like Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Pankaj Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and many other. This is also the reason behind his disappearance from Bollywood.
After Mahabharata, he was getting beard characters in movies. To change his image in Bollywood. He made Shaktimaan, under his home production company, Bheeshm. They take it as a Hindi remake of Superman. But, the Indian touch to this TV series, helped it to rules over Indian from 5 years to 60 years old people.
The other reason of the success of this TV series is that at that time there were limited paid channels. There was only one channel that was watched by every Indian and that is Doordarshan. This was the first Indian TV series which crossed 400 episodes. After this TV series, we never see any superhero, who got this much of support and ratings.

It was liked by children so much that they even jumped from their roofs, so that Shaktimaan will come and save them. This is the main reason that Mukesh Khanna has to stop this TV series.
