Anil Kapoor's desi version of the international action drama show, 24, will soon air on the small screen. On August 22, the actor unveiled the first promo to the media. The show is not just Anil's TV debut, it's also the first time a popular film star is acting in a small-screen show. Another first is that the show is being for Indian audiences from the American one.
"The canvas and scale of the show is like a film, so I can say I'll be shooting 24 films. The exposure on TV is massive and films can't give you that," says Anil. Director Abhinay Deo adds, "It will be like a one-hour film every week. The storytelling, star cast, execution, real locations, action, look and feel will all hopefully set new standards for TV shows." Here are some stills from the first promo.
