Action + Fantasy + Family + Comedy
Shaktimaan was, as a child, adopted by seven "gurus" who trained and blessed him with "yogic shakti". This granted him superhuman powers when he grew up, which he used to become a defender of truth and justice. His first case involved stopping bank robbers.
Khanna plays the role of Shaktiman and his alter-ego Pandit Gangadhar Vidyadhar Mayadhar Omkarnathnath Shastri, a photographer for the Aaj Ki Awaaz newspaper. Like Superman, Shaktiman is superhumanly strong, has the ability to fly, and is invulnerable to injury. He received his powers from seven gurus who trained and blessed him with "yogic shakti". He is a defender of truth and justice as well as a role model for his television audience, even going so far as to lecture viewers on hygiene, patriotism, education.
