Will Ranveer Singh Be The New Shaktimaan?

New Delhi: Ranveer Singh could play the new ‘Shaktimaan’ in a movie based on the 90s superhero. Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna had portrayed the role of the superhero on the small screen in the 90s and now, it is said that Ranveer has been approached to essay the role for the big screen, News18 reported.

Shaktimaan was a superhero show that aired on Doordarshan. The protagonist, much like Superman, was a superhero under the garb of a photojournalist by the name of Pandit Gangadhar Vidhyadhar Mayadhar Omkarnath Shastri. In February 2022, Mukesh had confirmed that a trilogy based on the superhero is in the making.

“Ranveer has shown a keen interest in playing Shaktimaan, the Indian superhero. The makers too feel that Ranveer can bring a natural charisma to the superhero character, who was first introduced in 1997. Talks are on with the actor and the team,” India Today reported quoting a source, adding that Mukesh is yet to confirm the news.

Meanwhile, Ranveer has a slew of films in the making like Cirkus and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
