Music mogul Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to launch a leg of the popular Got Talent show in Afghanistan.

The 53-year-old, who also launched The X Factor, wants to bring out the talent in Afghanistan and provide entertainment for people there, reports

"Simon has always believed Got Talent can work anywhere, because no matter where you are, people have amazing talents," a source said.

"There may be a war raging in Afghanistan, but people are still living their lives and they enjoy watching TV just like anyone else. Rules are being drawn up, but there is a possibility troops will be allowed to enter assuming they can get permission," the source added.

Afghanistan would be the 58th country to take the hit show. Some other countries which already have the show are Brazil, Ukraine, South Korea, India and Kazakhstan.

Cowell is still trying to figure out some celebrity names who can judge the show.
