He might have lost the recent political battle against actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha, but that has not deterred Shekhar Suman. He is set to try his luck again.

"I'm definitely going back to politics. Politics just becomes a springboard to come closer to people. It's about connecting with them and I believe it's payback time as I owe a lot to my state Bihar and my people there," Shekhar told IANS.

"I care for the people there and politics is now going to be an eternal process for me. I'm going to open a 200-bed hospital for paediatrics and cardiac problems in Patna. And I'll also try for some acting institutes there as people back home don't really have any other place to go but Mumbai to hone their acting skills," he added.

The actors contested from Bihar's Patna Saheb parliamentary constituency during the April-May Lok Sabha elections.
