Anil Kapoor Acquire Rights of American TV Series 24

Anil Kapoor is all set to make his Television debut with the American TV Series 24 which he has recently bought. The popular American TV Series 24 ran for eight seasons and the finale also had Anil Kapoor in a cameo.

The remake rights of the show have been bought by Kapoor’s production and will now be altered for the Indian audience. Sources say, “It took him a year of negotiations with the American producers and creators of 24 to crack the deal.”

It further said, “The international team of 24 will be involved with the making. The show will air in Hindi and will also be dubbed in various regional languages. Kapoor is in talks with India’s top channels and the show will air sometime next year.”

Anil is expected to play the iconic character of Jack Bauer in his counter-terrorism drama which was originally played by Kiefer Sutherland. Leading roles will cast top actors from the industry and the show will be shot on a big canvas.

Kapoor said, “I am really happy that the makers of the show have put their faith in me for its Indian version. When I was shooting for it in the US, I kept wishing that I could take something like this to my Indian audience. Now that wish is close to getting fulfilled.”

“It’s a huge honour, but I am anxious as Jack is an iconic character like Jack Sparrow or Batman. He is loved all over the world. It’s a great responsibility for me as an entrepreneur and as actor. I will try my best and hope I can do even 50 per cent of what they have done. If I achieve a little of what Keifer has, I will be happy,” he said, when he was questioned about slipping in Jack Bauer’s shoes.

The most repeated and famous line of Jack is ‘Son of a b***h!’ in the show. It would be interesting to watch the translation of this by Anil in Hindi.
