By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Feb. 29 -- Shekhar Suman's popular '90s TV show Movers & Shakers (M&S) returns with season 2 after almost a decade. Starting March 12, it is being planned as a mix of existing formats like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and hit US sketch show, Saturday Night Live.

Shekhar says, "On the show, I voice the common man's opinion and views. We will discuss politics, the economy and entertainment, making it topical." The previous season of the show, which ended in 2001, ran for three years on Sony TV and featured over 1,500 celebs from all walks of life. It will now be aired on SAB TV.

"It feels like a second honeymoon, like coming home and revisiting a friend. We have made some changes in the format with more celebs, and even clips from old episodes of M&S to see how the celebs and I have changed over the last 10 years," adds Shekhar.

The show will also have segments like film analysis, Shekhar's gags, a stand-up comedy act, along with a 10minute chat with the famous guests. "It will be a compact show, and I am keen to have new celebrities, as well as the ones I had in the earlier season. We plan to get Anna Hazare for the first episode. He represents the common man and is a righteous person. Firebrand politician Raj Thackeray is another person on our list," reveals Shekhar, adding they will need 22 celebrities every month.
