Shreyas Talpade is an actor. Right, we know that you know that. But recently he seems to be taking on tasks that go way beyond his calling!
Like many Bollywood personalities, Shreyas too apparently wants to get involved in active politics. He was recently spotted attending a meeting with PM Manmohan Singh and some dignitaries in Mumbai. He says that he is deeply concerned about the nation, especially since 26/11. He also says that it won't be surprising if he becomes one of the contenders in the next elections. Whether he said this in jest or earnest, we'll only know in the next polls.
There was another occasion lately when Shreyas went out of the way to embrace another job profile. That of a traffic cop! This came to pass when he was stuck in a major traffic jam in Mumbai recently. The actor got out of his car and helped a few volunteers on the road in clearing it up.
In the current depressing state of affairs in Bollywood, it's perhaps only good that Shreyas is keeping his options open. But kudos to his spirit on both the occasions, all the same!
