Actor Anil Kapoor, who is set to bring the Indian adaption of award-winning American TV series, 24, to the small screen, says he is willing to cast daughter Sonam Kapoor if there is a role for her.

“If there is a character which suits Sonam or Sonam thinks will suit her, then why not? We will definitely pitch, these days we have to talk to Sonam’s managers,” the 52-year-old said on Tuesday at the launch of the TV show.

24 is an American television series that started in 2001 and ran till 2010, with a total of 192 episodes.

Anil featured in the eighth season of the show as Omar Hassan, president of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan.

Meanwhile, when asked about his personal favourite television show, he said, “I liked Buniyaad, which was directed by Ramesh Sippy ji. I loved that.”

About the show, the actor said, “I am not nervous or scared about doing television roles because I know what it entails. When I took on 24 in the US, I was anxious. But now I am confident. The exposure is massive and films can’t give you that. I will be focussing on the show, which is why I have not signed many films. Auditions for the cast are on. The show will make them huge stars.”
