History: Aaryaaman is the story of a boy born on a human-life supporting planet in Ariana, a galaxy many light-years away from Earth.

The distressed citizens look up to him and believe that he is their saviour and will tide them over adverse situations.

Comments:  Created by and played by Mukesh Khanna, who also plays Shaktimaan, and produced by Khanna's own company, Bheeshm International. Aired on the state broadcast network, Doordarshan. Khanna notes that the characters are inspired by Indian mythology, but set in a science fiction setting. In fact he describes the series as "the Indianised version of Star Wars".
