Actor Mandira Bedi, who is back on the small screen after a gap of nine years with the Indian adaptation of American drama series 24, is essaying the role of a government agent on the show. The Hindi version, which has borrowed the same name is written by Rensil D’Silva, directed by Abhinay Deo and produced by Anil Kapoor. It will premiere in August.
“I play a government agent in 24. I have shot for ten days and will be shooting my part for another 45 days over four months. It has been a great experience. I am doing fiction after nine years,” Mandira said in an interview here.
“I chose 24 because I was excited, I have seen the international format, and I wanted to work with Abhinay. I have watched five seasons. I am playing the Nina Myers character. Tisca Chopra and actor Anita Raj play the other characters,” she said.
Nina Myers is a fictional character on the American show, played by Sarah Clarke. Earlier, Mandira has acted in television serials like Shanti and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. And now she is back as an anchor on singing reality show, Indian Idol Junior.
