Doordarshan favourites are back on the telly amid the nationwide lockdown because of the coronavirus outbreak. After Ramayan made a comeback on DD National after 33 years on Sunday morning, the return of two new shows were announced - Shah Rukh Khan's 1989 series Circus and Rajit Kapoor starrer Byomkesh Bakshi, which aired in 1993. "Shekharan is back on DD National! Friends, stay at home and watch your favourite Shah Rukh's Circus - TV Series (1989) - From March 28 at 8 pm," DD National tweeted. The role of circus troupe member Shekharan in Circus was one of SRK's earliest and is still fondly recalled by those who grew up watching Doordarshan in the Nineties. Directed by Vicky Aziz Mirza and Kundan Shah, Circus also starred Renuka Shahane, Pawan Malhotra and Ashutosh Gowariker, now a director, in a significant role. Shah Rukh's TV debut was in 1989's Fauji and 1992's Deewana was his first Bollywood movie.
