Following Ranveer Singh’s speculation to play our desi superhero, reports indicate that Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior filmmaker Om Raut has been approached by studios to bring Shaktimaan to the big screen. It’s not surprising that the renowned director will direct the nostalgic superhero, given his background in VFX-heavy blockbusters.

Om Raut presented the historic Maratha warrior in a heroic light in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, skillfully blending fact and enthusiasm. According to Mid-Day, the studios have approached the legendary director about taking over the director’s chair. However, Sony Pictures Entertainment has not provided a confirmation.
