Most children born in the 90s era would be familiar with the swanky yet graceful, only Indian superhero “ Shaktimaan”, and almost every household in India would have witnessed, and loved the character of Bhishma Pitamah in B.R.Chopra’s cult classic Mahabharat. Both these roles were portrayed excellently by the magical Indian actor, producer, and director, Mukesh Khanna.

Mukesh Khanna graduated from the Film and Television Institute of India where Naseeruddin Shah and Shakti Kapoor were his classmates. He rose to fame with his role of Bhishma Pitamah, who was the grandfather of Pandavas and Kauravas, in B.R.Chopra directed, Mahabharat. He received immense applause by people from the film and television fraternity for his performances on the show. Khanna was also highly committed and loyal to his job.

When Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms remade Mahabharat in 2013, under the title “ Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki” he claimed that her show wouldn’t find much success, because the Mahabharat that he was cast in had actors, whereas her show had models as characters. He also declined Kapoor’s offer of the role of Shantanu. From the year 1997 to 2005, Khanna played the role of the reputed Indian superhero Shaktimaan, which aired over 500 episodes of the show. The show amassed immense popularity, and Khanna became a household name in India.

After completing the show, he was also cast in the sci-fi Hindi series titled Aryaman which was financed by Khanna’s production house “Bheeshma International”. He has also featured in various television series Waqt Batayega, Ehsaas, Yug, Deewar, Maryaada, and Chandrakanta. He ventured into films with Roohi and Waqt Ke Shehzaade in 1981. Saudagar, International Khiladi, Tahalka, Main Khiladi Tu Anari and Hera Pheri marked some of his prominent movie roles. He has also appeared briefly in more than 50 films, inclusive of Hindi, Marathi and Telugu languages.

He has also been a bachelor ever since people know him. Khanna is also the Chairperson of Children’s Film Society of India. 

                                                                                                              

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                   

                                                                                                                       

 

Mir Ranjan Negi Hindi Actor

Mir Ranjan Negi

Ranjan Negi is a renowned hockey player, but his introduction into Bollywood dates back to 2007 when the film, ‘Chak De’, was released. Based on his personal life, as the film was sketched and written, it led to a lot of curiosity as it was a Yash Raj Film, and even had Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan mediating the role of a coach in the film. The writer of the film was Mir Jaideep Sahni, who handled even the screenplay and the script of the film. Besides this, Negi was physically involved in training Shah Rukh Khan for the film. This amounted to name and fame for Negi in the media and showbiz world. Later, he broke the tradition and entered dance reality shows like ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2’, and climbed to the semi-finals, but lost and later made an exit. He was the only participant who was not from the TV screen and film world. Yet, the way he climbed to the semi-finals of the episode, surprised many. The reason he attributed to the participation in the show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2’, was to build a hockey academy in the name of his son who died at the age of 19 due to an accident. Although, Negi lost, he was quite optimistic that he would be able to fulfill his dream of constructing a hockey academy in memory of his son. Due to his fame from ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2’, Negi later was offered a brief role in the Garhwali language film," Subero Ghaam’. After Negi’s participation in dance reality shows, many cricketers too followed the same path and started participating in the dance reality show, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Negi was even supposed to appear in a Hindi movie, but there have been no clues as to how far it has progressed. Bitten by the charm of Bollywood glamor, the hockey actor and reality show participant has another feather in his cap by releasing an audio album.
