Parts of the second season of TV show'24' is set to be filmed here in Dubai, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, one of the show's producers, said.

The Indian remake of the American TV show consists of a day in the life of the special agent as he strives to solve a criminal conspiracy, with each episode chronicling an hour of drama filmed in real time.

"Yes, we will bring 24 here very soon. Dubai is very cinema-friendly. There is a lot of security, great locations, cars and roads - that is why so many people come to film here," Kapoor told a daily.

The original US version starred Kiefer Sutherland as Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer. Kapoor acquired the rights from US Fox network to remake the Indian version in 2011 and it made its successful debut on Colors in October this year.
