Amidst all the darkness unleashed by the novel coronavirus, here’s a ray of hope: Aziz Mirza’s 1989 tele series, Circus which introduced us to Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan, has made a comeback on Doordarshan.
“Shekharan is BACK on @DDNational! Friends, #StayAtHome and watch your favourite @iamsrk”s #Circus – TV Series (1989) – From 28th March at 8 pm on @DDNational” DD National tweeted.
The show which also featured Renuka Shahane and Ashutosh Gowariker was directed by Mirza and Kundan Shah. However, it is most noted for marking Khan’s entry into the Hindi film industry.
Adding to this, the national broadcaster will also telecast Mukesh Khanna’s ‘Shaktimaan’. Shaktimaan is often touted to be India’s first superhero series and has been a cult favourite amongst children throughout the 90s.
