Yes, Mukesh Khanna recently reported that "first Shaktimaan was airing on Saturday morning and Tuesday evening. Despite being non-prime time, the show was going well. Doordarshan had to pay 3.80 lakh for the show. In that time, shows were sponsored and ads earned us. About 100-150 episodes went on like this," he said, adding,
"I was later told by Doordarshan that Shaktiman is so popular that it should be aired on Sunday. Children also have holidays on that day. I had to pay 7.80 lakh because it was aired on Sunday. Even so, I ran the show," he further revealed, "The next year there were 104 episodes of the show and I was asked to pay 10.80 lakh. He said that with 104 episodes, the fee is one-and-a-half times. I told him that it was the result of success. From 3 lakh to 10 lakh, I was getting a huge amount. That's when I found out that he was thinking of doing it to 16 lakh. I protested, but they didn't listen," he said.
