DK Films to launch 10 Indian Superheroes by 2020


With Superhero craze amongst youngsters increasing, it won't be wrong to expect an Indian-inspired Superhero soon. And DK Films, a Delhi based production house has already started working on it. The production house has made its first Indian Superhero series titled Mahakaal, which is based on Indian mythology.

DK Films will soon be coming up with 10 more Indian Superheroes. These include Naari, She, Halt, Mr Suitboy to name a few.

Founders of DK Films, Dushyant Kapoor and Ankit Vatsa say that their creations are inspired by their favourite childhood Superheroes. Thus, most of the series has a connection to 90s Superheroes. However, these are more focused on Indian Mythology.

After 'Mahakaal', the makers launched 'Boom' which is made with an influence of the magic pencil shown in popular TV Show 'Shaka Laka Boom Boom'. Another character Mr Suitboy is an Indian Superhero with powers to get invisible. It is inspired by Anil Kapoor starrer Mr India. The formula seems to be a hit as Shaktiman trailer on DK Films YouTube channel reached billions of views in just a matter of time.

With 'Avengers: Endgame' set to release next month; the excitement towards superhero series is on its peak currently. By adding up 10 new Superheroes, DK Films will be making Indian Avengers team. This is the first time that Indian Superheroes are being created for the global audience, the company claimed.
