There could be no one in the 90s who did not watch Shaktimaan. This indigenous superhero was a favorite with all. And there are more than one reason for the love and attention he received.

1. He was no show-off

Where every western superhero wore his undies’ outside; he liked to keep it in. He could rock even without showing off his briefs. Way to go Shaktimaan!

2. No muscles yet strong

He did not have any six pack abs or ‘dole-shole’ yet he was as strong as a bull. He would make his enemies wince in pain with a just a blow!

9. Education with entertainment

Shaktimaan was a complete package. He not only entertained us. He also taught us the good habits by his ‘Chhoti-chhoti magar moti baatein’ section’ that made the phrase ‘sorry Shaktimaan’ so popular, we can still hear it now sometimes.
