However, the OG Shaktimaan is quite choosy over finalising the lead actor. While reports were abuzz that Ranveer Singh would be seen as Shaktimaan, the veteran actor busted the rumours and even deemed Ranveer unfit to play the iconic role of Shaktimaan. Even fans of the Padmaavat actor lashed out at Mukesh Khanna for making comments on their matinee idol. However, now it seems things have sorted out and the veteran actor will soon clear the airs.
