Earlier this year, due to the lockdown and all productions being halted, from Ramayan to Fauji, Doordarshan began re-telecasting some of the most iconic shows from the 90s. Now, viewers have also demanded the telecast of the iconic show Captain Vyom starring Milind Soman. The makers are now taking a new approach and will be introducing the story to this generation with a mini-series.
According to reports, Captain Vyom was a hit among youngsters as it was the first Indian futuristic science fiction series and introduced space travel. The show followed a crew which took on different missions and travelled to different planets and galaxies. Soman played the titular role, who was a super soldier, assigned by World Government to capture fugitives.

However, Ketan Mehta won’t be returning to direct the franchise, but will be involved as a part of the creative team.

Mehta also told the daily, “We are perfectly placed to reimagine the mythological and supernatural elements of the show. So, a fresh Indian perspective to the space age should be exciting.”

While Milind has worked in some Hindi films like 16 December, Rules: Pyaar Ka Superhit Formula, Say Salaam India and Bajirao Mastani, been away from the screen for quite some time now.
