After popular demand, Doordarshan has announced that 'Shaktimaan' will be re-broadcasted on the channel to keep us all busy and to remind us of the good ol' days.
Die hard Shaktimaan fans demanded to bring the show on television after Doordarshan re-broadcast classic shows like Ramayana and Mahabharat.
Mukesh Khanna, the actor who played Shaktimaan shared the news on Twitter.

According to India TV, in an interview with Bombay Times he also revealed that the sequel to the show is in works. He said:
For the last three years, we have been working towards bringing out the second edition of Shaktimaan, which is contemporary, but rooted in our values. We were working on the sequel because people wanted to know, aage kya hua?
In those days, watching this show was a family activity where the entire family would sit together every Sunday for one hour religiously and see Shaktimaan fight crime and we are ready to re-live those days again.
Of course, fans were also happy and are eagerly waiting to binge-watch the show again.
