‘Original’ Shaktiman obliges; Actor Mukesh to don the role in Dhamaka
Mukesh Khanna has reportedly withdrawn his complaint against director Omar Lulu for presenting actor Mukesh as Shaktiman in his new movie Dhamaka. Omar Lulu has shared a facebook post hinting at the same.
Omar shared the letter he wrote to Mukesh Khanna through his Facebook profile. The post thanks Mukesh Khanna for heeding to his request and letting him use the character in his new movie.
Mukesh Khanna, famous for his mini screen role as Shaktiman, had written to FEFKA union president Ranji Panicker against presenting Shaktiman in the Malayalam movie. He alleged in the letter that the copyright of the character was with him and it was without his consent that Omar Lulu used veteran actor Mukesh in the role. He had also warned of legal actions unless Omar Lulu withdrew the character from the movie.
