He took to his Twitter to share the details and said, “Dharavi is at the epicentre of the Covid19 outbreak.Many citizens supported by MCGM are working tirelessly on ground through NGOs to provide the needy with ration & hygiene kits. We at ADFF are helping 700 families.I urge you to also donate http://bit.ly/Feed-Dharavi #MissionDharavi”

Shreyas Talpade’s first role was that of Sita for a school play on Ramayana. The next year he played Draupadi in the school version of the Mahabharat. This was perhaps the first sign of how versatile Shreyas Talpade would be in later years. From school plays to street plays to monologues and mimes - Shreyas wanted to learn and be a part of everything. "From 1990 till 2005 I did close to 2500 shows of different productions on the professional stage. Hindi, Marathi, English, Urdu - such was my love for the stage that I didn't want to miss a single chance to be under the arc lights. Whatever I am today is because of theatre, it grooms you and betters your craft like no other medium. Whatever little appreciation I get in my films today is all because of the theatre," reminisces Talpade.From theatre, the actor made the switch to television, and later films. But in the midst of all his other work commitments, Shreyas was inspired to return to the stage - with Zee Theatre's teleplay 'Typecaste'. Also starring, Atul Mathur, Aaditi Pohankar and Utkarsh Mazumdar.“I personally love the format of a teleplay and that's the reason why I did 'Typecaste'. I think teleplay is a great experiment where we get rid of the proverbial 'fourth wall'. It almost was like shooting for a film in an enclosed studio. It was quite challenging but I think these formats need to be explored a lot more. I am glad that ‘Typecaste’ is being watched on so many platforms and being appreciated.”Typecaste is an adaptation of a Marathi play called ‘Pahije Jatiche‘ by the famous playwright Vijay Tendulkar. The play is set in the seventies when the caste system was not just prevalent but rigidly enforced in India. However, the play shows how the context of the story is relevant in present-day India as well. Shreyas plays the role of Mahipat Babruvahan who becomes the first from his caste and village to complete his Master's degree. Mahipat has a dream of becoming a professor in a particular college and the play showcases all he does to achieve his dream including managing his love interest."The script is layered and entertaining,” says Shreyas who is known for his comic timing. It almost seems like the role was written for Shreyas. The play is packed with little nuances which make Shreyas shine - the over-sized blazer that he wears to ensure people take him seriously to a mini solo dance in front of a yet-to-be pressed mound of clothes - its vintage Shreyas Talpade.“Typecaste is entertainment with a strong social message and that is the voice of this play. I have always believed you can say a lot with humour and somehow for me, it hits home harder," says Shreyas.

Since his last stint as Superman in Justice League, fans have been eagerly waiting for an update on the next Superman movie starring Henry Cavill. Though there is no confirmation on the next slate of films starring the actor, it seems like he might return as Clark Kent / Superman in the upcoming DC Comics movie.Deadline reported that the actor might return either in a cameo role in any of the upcoming films or there could be a full-fledged movie in the making. "We hear Cavill could come back in a couple of different ways, not a standalone film, but there are plans to put him back in the big red cape again sources with knowledge tell us. Warner Bros. is not developing a Man of Steel sequel, and Wonder Woman 1984, Suicide Squad are in the can, and Superman isn’t expected to make a cameo in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Other projects where Cavill could make a cameo are Shazam 2, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam or Aquaman 2, which are the next productions to be prepped once COVID-19 safety restrictions lift," the report stated.Back in December 2019, Henry Cavill featured on the cover of Men's Health where he spoke about the possibility of Superman's return in the DC Universe. “The cape is still in the closet,” he said. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up on the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”Henry Cavill played Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, and Justice League. A few days ago, it was announced that Zack Snyder will release his cut of Justice League on HBO Max in 2021.
