Mukesh Khanna Height

Mukesh Khanna

Name: Mukesh Khanna

Height: 5'7"

Reflect on the actor Mukesh Khanna and the image of 'Shaktimaan' leap in front of the mind’s eyes. Or that of 'Bheeshma Pitamaha' from the television magnum opus “Mahabharata.”

Khanna completed his graduation from St. Xavier's College, Mumbai, and wished to join a plastic engineering college in Kanpur. Hoever, destiny had other plans for him. He fell short by 0.5 per cent and that detination was blocked. So he obtained another academic degree by dong 'LLB' from the Government Law College. Even then, the last thing he considered was the career as an actor. Nevertheless, his brother thought that this tall, broad and handsome man has it in him ehat it requires to become a star and motivated him to foray into the world of acting. So he joingot admitted to the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune where he became conscious that his dialogue delivery was better than many of the other students. "I feel all my mugging in Law College came handy and I reel off page after page without any difficulty," he says.

His earliest 'break' arrived in the form of theatre director Nariender Bedi’s movie called 'Khooni'. Unfortunately, the film never saw the light of the day as Bedi passed away before the filmiong could be completed. After that, Khanaa signed some 10 to 15 films in the 1980s, including Ruhi, Capt. Bari, and Dard e Dil, which were mostly box office disasters. The film industry labeled him as a flop hero.

In the, Khanna finally got the recognition he deserved in television. B.R. Chopra’s serial 'Mahabharat' happened. The makers of that serial were searching for probable actors for the series and they wanted tall people. Khanna’s height got him noticed. First, he was offered the role of 'Duryodhana' but it being a negative role he declined. So he got the role of  'Bheeshma Pitamaha' instead. He won the hearts of the nation with his magnificent portrayal of Bheesma. Later Doordarshan again wanted to make a serial with him. Thus 'Shaktimaan' come about. It was his home production. The concept was Khanna’s, he desired to make a movie on this. But a serial came out of it. It was an instant hit with the kids and garnered unprecedented popularity.

Mukesh Khanna has also lent his voice for the character of Hanumanji in the animated feature film, Hanuman, which released on 21 October 2005 in cinema halls across India. This film was also favorably received all over the country.

Till this date, he is entirely involved with his merchandise company of the brand Shaktimaan and his production company Bheeshm.
