Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna, renowned for his portrayal of Shaktimaan in the iconic television series, has weighed in on the ongoing speculations surrounding Ranveer Singh’s potential casting as the superhero in the forthcoming film adaptation. Addressing the chatter, Khanna sparked discussions with his candid remarks on social media, despite no official casting announcement.

Expressing his reservations about the rumoured casting, the 65-year-old actor emphasized in an Instagram post, “Social media has been abuzz with rumours of Ranveer Singh playing Shaktimaan for months. There has been widespread dissatisfaction with this choice.” Khanna firmly believes that an actor, regardless of their star power, cannot adequately embody the essence of Shaktimaan.

Khanna elaborated on his stance in a video, suggesting alternative roles more suited to Singh’s image. He highlighted countries like Finland and Spain, where Singh’s physique could be better showcased in projects featuring frequent nudity. Khanna emphasized the importance of casting an actor for Shaktimaan who possesses the ability to command attention and serve as a mentor figure.

Amidst reports indicating Ranveer Singh’s involvement in the Shaktimaan project, with filming speculated to commence soon, Khanna’s remarks have sparked debates among fans and industry observers. While PinkVilla previously reported Singh’s association with the film, citing sources detailing the project’s development over three years, official confirmation regarding casting awaits.
