Doordarshan is all set to bring back 90’s nostalgia to viewers amid the coronavirus lockdown. Show like Circus starring Shah Rukh Khan, Shaktimaan and Byomkesh Bakshi will be replayed on the channel.

Doordarshan National’s social media handle tweeted, “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.”

It was one of Shah Rukh Khan’s earliest roles. Directed by Vicky Aziz Mirza and Kundan Shah, Circus also starred Renuka Shahane, Pawan Malhotra and Ashutosh Gowariker, in a significant role.

Also announcing the return of Rajit Kapur-starrer Byomeksh Bakshi, DD National tweeted, “MUST WATCH -#RajitKapur in a role with which he will be associated forever!
Detective show #ByomkeshBakshi in few minutes at 11 am only on @DDNational.”

Actor Mukesh Khanna aka Shaktimaan is a part of childhood memories for those who grew up in the ’90s. The actor took to his YouTube Channel and announced that the show will be re-telecast on Doordarshan.

He added that the decision to air Ramayan and Mahabharat in the times of lockdown has been a welcome move and Shaktimaan will follow suit.

Earlier, Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar, had announced that the iconic mythological TV series, Ramayana, which first aired from 1987-1988, will return to Doordarshan National starting 28 March. The show has been given two slots - 9 am to 10 am and in the evening between 9 pm to 10 pm.
