TV show 24 actor Kiefer Sutherland wants to visit India for charity work, says Anil Kapoor, who recently made his international television debut with the American action series.

“Sutherland is very keen to come to India for charity work. He wants to see our country and do social work,” says Kapoor. “He knew that I was associated with an NGO called Plan India; so he said ‘I’d love to come and take part in an activity for children there.”

Kapoor plays Omar Hassan, the president of a fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan in the eighth and the final season of the show. Based in New York, the action thriller stars Sutherland in the lead as special federal agent Jack Bauer. Presented in the semblance of real time, each 24-episode season covers 24 hours in the life of Bauer.

Kapoor was all praise for Sutherland who has been doing the show since 2001. “He (Sutherland) is still child-like and wants to do his best despite working for so long on the same show. He brought a certain kind of freshness every time he gave a shot,” added Kapoor.
