MUMBAI: After Ramayana, Doordarshan is all set to re-telecast another popular TV series Shaktimaan to entertain the masses who remain indoors on account of the ongoing lock-down caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. According to reports, the one-hour-long series will be re-telecast every day from 1 pm on DD National beginning 1 April.

The once-popular superman series, produced by Mukesh Khanna, who played the role of Shaktimaan, had entertained youngsters and old people alike. Khanna played the role of "Pandit Gangadhar Vidhyadhar Mayadhar Omkarnath Shastri", a newspaper photographer. Shaktimaan was portrayed as a human who achieved superhuman powers through meditation.

The Hindi-language TV show was telecast on DD 1 from 13 September 1997 to 27 March 2005.

Earlier, Prasar Bharati and the I&B ministry announced the re-telecasting of classics like Ramananda Sagar-directed Ramayana through the public broadcaster. When the epic TV serial was re-telecasted for the first time, people thronged the DD website to watch the streaming, causing it to crash due to the excessive traffic.

Reports say that the public broadcaster is also planning to bring back Chanakya and Upanishad Ganga which will air on DD Bharti.
