The Japanese game show Takeshi’s Castle gained immense love from Indian audiences when it was broadcast on television in the early 21st century. At that time, the show was dubbed in Hindi by Jaaved Jaaferi. For the children of the 90’s, the show by Jaaved Jaaferi became a mandatory visit on weekends. Now, according to reports, everything is ready to return in the new avatar.
According to reports, Takeshi’s Castle is undergoing a reboot, which will be available on Amazon Prime Video in 2023. The report also indicated that it would be available in more than 240 markets with the new name. The show will be called “Fukkatsu! Fun! Takeshi-jo ‘, which means Return of Takeshi Castle, according to a DNA report.
In an interview with indianexpress.com Jaaved Jaaferi responded to the news. Although he did not confirm or deny reports of Takeshi’s return, he said he would like to participate in the restart. “I want to go back and do it again. I love the show. He has great connections with people, “said Jaaved.
“Whoever won, samajh hi nahi aaya aaj tak,” he laughed, adding, “A lot of people, a whole generation, grew up in Takeshi Castle. They want me to do this show. There is a relationship to the show. I would like to do that. “
Jaaved recalled his favorite memory of the show and said that whenever he met people, they told him how they had grown up watching Boogie Woogie or Takeshi Castle. “When I meet people, they thank me for bringing them the show. They tell me that I am part of their childhood, which is a great compliment to me. It is a blessing that I was part of the childhood of so many people, “he concluded.
The original version of Takeshi Castle began broadcasting on television in Japan in 1986. It was broadcast in 1990. However, it found its popularity in other regions much later. In addition to India, Takeshi Castle was broadcast in countries such as Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Malaysia and others.
