Anil Kapoor unveiled the action-packed trailer of 24: Season 2 on Wednesday evening amid applause by Bollywood personalities such as Aamir Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Anil’s daughter Sonam.
The trailer begins with Anil’s character Jai Singh Rathore who is in a rehab and haunted by his past. The Anti-Terrorism Squad agent may have put terrorist Roshan Sherchan (Ashish Vidyarthi) in prison in the first season but it took a toll on his personal life.
However, Mumbai is faced with a new threat -- a virus that can destroy the city – and the Prime Minister (played by Neil Bhoopalam) gets Jai out of the rehab and right in the middle of the action.
The trailer has some slick action and many new faces like Suveen Chawla and Sikander. In fact, talking about the stunts in the show, Anil had said earlier: “My body is all bruised. I had to go to a physiotherapist as well. In fact, some of the stuntsmen also got injured, but everyone is fit to work relentlessly.”
The first season of 24, the Indian adaptation of the popular American TV show, aired in 2013. The latest season will be aired on Colors from July 17 onwards.
24: Season 2 also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Ashish Vidyarthi, Harsh Chhaya, Neil Bhoopalam, Sapna Pabbi and Sudhanshu Pandey.
Bollywood celebs took to Twitter to congratulate Anil on the second season of his TV show:
