The very ambitious, and rightfully so, Anil Kapoor is all set for the premiere of his first television show, 24. The television series,which is officially based on the American series of the same name, will air its first episode on Friday, October 4th 2013 at 10 pm on Colors. If speculated rumors are correct, the series will run thrice a week on a Friday to Sunday slot. The channel has yet to confirm this news.
Kapoor will be seen playing Jack Bauer (originally played by Keifer Sutherland). Coincidentally, he has also starred in the original series, where he did a cameo as an Arabian President in the 8th season. The Indian 24 is directed by Abhinav Deo, who is most popular for his film Delhi Belly, and stars Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher and Mandira Bedi, among prominent names.
Colors CEO Raj Nayak tweeted live from the press conference, which announced the launch, on September 19th 2013. The entire cast was present at the event. Along with the press conference, Kapoor will be making an appearance on yet another hit show on Colors – Bigg Boss Seson 7, as part of the promotional bid. The episode will air on this coming weekend.
It is said that 24 will be replacing Colors most popular comedy show, Comedy Nights with Kapil. Comedy Nights with Kapil has been one of the top shows of the time slot. Audiences have loved CNWK and are pleased that a show of equal caliber is to follow.
