Mukesh khanna and his office
Mukesh entered The Film industry in 1982 after graduating from Film and Television Institute of India. He attended the school with fellow Indian actors Naseeruddin Shah and Shakti Kapoor. He rose to fame and is still best known for playing Bhishma in B. R. Chopra's Mahabharat. Khanna had a major role as an Indian Superhero in the Shaktiman series, which was successful all over India with children.
Khanna worked in the television series Aryamaan – Brahmaand Ka Yodha as the character of the same name on Toon Disney in India. Khanna has worked in many television productions and films depicting him as police inspector such as the film Hera Pheri. He has also worked in a television series called Waqt Bataye Ga. He has played roles in films such as Tahalka and International Khiladi. He played the father of Bobby Deol's character in the film Barsaat.
Khanna was offered the role of Shantanu in Ekta Kapoor's Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki; he refused. He told the press that Ekta's Mahabharat is sure to be a flop because BR Chopra's Mahabharat had actors in it; her Mahabharat has "models" in it.
In 2007, Khanna participated in a child development project funded by the government, Shaktimaan, which targeted at preventing malnutrition and mother-child mortality rate, anemia in girls and health awareness.
Khanna operates two acting schools in Jaipur and Agra and has spoken about opening more. He also teamed with his former acting school, Film and Television Institute of India, for a three-month acting course.
Mukesh Khanna is still bachelor. He wanted to remain focused in his career so he never planned to marry. Khanna has never remained in any rumor of having girlfriend or dating any girl. In an interview he said that he is satisfied with his life's achievement. People will always remember him as Shaktimaan and Bhishma Pitamah.
