"Unfortunately this is not true, I am not a part of this Shaktimaan movie for now".
As soon Sony Pictures India announced the news of Shaktimaan being made into a film, Dushyant Kapoor's name started surfacing. Dushyant had created Shaktimaan fan-made trailer in 2016. Since the show is a sci-fi movie and he has been making sci-fi web series since the beginning, the assumption of his fans was not that far-fetched.
But Dushyant has finally confirmed that he is not the part of the film.
He said, “I was stunned to see people asking me 'if I am a part of it or am I directing this film?'. Six years ago, I know you all believed in me when I created Shaktimaan fan-made trailer, you all put your trust in me in millions and Mr. Mukesh Khanna ji appreciated us too. To all of you guys across the nation and world, I want to say that I am feeling so blessed that you guys believe that I can be a part of such a huge phenomenon but unfortunately this is not true. I am not a part of this Shaktimaan movie for now. I wish I could be the one."
Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna played the lead in show that continues to rule the hearts of children born in the 90s.
