Wow! Mukesh Khanna’s Shaktimaan To Be Back On TV!

The actor says he is working on his looks and body. He has also lost 8 kgs and in process of losing another 8 kilos! Mukesha further added, "I am not trying to get six pack abs. I want to try and match up with the look that I had 15 years back. People relate to me as Shaktimaan and I can't offer the role to anyone."

When asked why they are not considering any young actor to play the Shaktimaan, Mukhesh said, "I was very young when I played the role of Bhishmapitama in Mahabharat. I feel an actor can't be restricted due to age. I feel age is just a number. It depends on how you look and if you will be able to pull off the character with full conviction."
