Amitabh, along with Graphic India CEO and co-founder Sharad Devarajan, joined forces to create the new superhero, which is likely to look like the thespian himsel.
The 72-year-old has joined hands with Graphic India, Disney to create an animated series "Astra Force" for the small screen, said a source.
The show, which will be launched on Disney Channel in India, promises to be funny, fast-paced and full of action, adventure, laughter and thrills.
On the small screen, Amitabh has earlier made a mark as a quizmaster on "Kaun Banega Crorepati" and he has even explored the fiction genre of the television world with "Yudh". Now it remains to be seen how his animated avatar -- a first time attempt by him -- turns out to be.
