National broadcaster Doordarshan on Saturday said it has decided to retelecast two popular shows of yesteryears - Circus starring Shah Rukh Khan, and also Byomkesh Bakshi - amid the nationwide 21-day lockdown.

"Shekharan is BACK on @DDNational! Friends, #StayAtHome and watch your favorite @iamsrk's #Circus - TV Series (1989) - From 28th March at 8 pm on @DDNational," the tweet read.

Helmed by Vicky Aziz Mirza and Kundan Shah, Circus was one of Shah Rukh Khan's earliest shows.

It also starred Pawan Malhotra, Renuka Shahane and Ashutosh Gowariker, in a significant role.
