Politics is strictly no-no for actor Shekhar Suman, who is coming back on the small screen with the new season of his popular satirical show "Movers and Shakers". His first guest on the show March 12 will be Anna Hazare.

"No, never again," was Shekhar's response when reporters asked about his political plans. He was a Congress candidate from Patna in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls pitted against Shatrughan Sinha of the BJP. He had lost.

Shekhar, 52, promises a "more refined, funnier 'Movers and Shakers'", which will now come on SAB TV.

"The show (first version) was path-breaking in many terms and we have only set tougher and higher benchmarks for us for the new innings," he added.

Suman, who was in Lucknow Thursday to promote the show, said it would have a mix of new and old guests and that it would be shot only a day in advance to ensure it is as fresh and newsy as it could be.
