As millions of Indians are asked to stay within their houses for 21 days, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry issued an advisory to DTH and Cable operators to broadcast the favourite shows of the 1990’s on DD channels. With this, India’s first superhero television series Shaktimaan has come back to entertain people. The information was earlier revealed by Shaktimaan star Mukesh Khanna himself via a Twitter post. In his tweet, Khanna had said that this will be an opportunity for around 130 crore Indians to experience the world of Shaktimaan again.
Khanna’s Shaktimaan had aired on DD 1 during the period 1997 and 2005. The success of the show was huge as it was translated into different languages as well and later aired on different channels.

Not only Shaktimaan but other mythological shows like Mahabharat and Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan are also being aired on Doordarshan channels. The shows have been brought again in order to entertain people at a time when there is a lockdown and sentiments among people have been on a lower note given the Coronavirus outbreak within the country. A statement by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry clears that five TV shows will be telecast on Doordarshan. These include Upanishad Ganga, Shriman Shrimati, Chanakya, Krishna Kali and Shaktimaan. Apart from this, Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Circus and Byomkesh Bakshi have already started airing on DD, PTI reported along with Hum Hain Na and Tu Tota Main Maina.
Meanwhile, these shows are expected to be carried by the broadcaster and failure to do so will result in the broadcaster being liable for action under various sections of the act, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said.
