Actor Anil Kapoor-starrer serial '24' will go on air from October 4. Kapoor is making his television debut with the Indian adaptation of the hit international TV series of the same name.
The show will be aired every Friday and Saturday at 10 pm on Colors. "I am getting nervous to announce the show date. It is a great moment of my life. There is excitment.... I am thankful, grateful to all actors, technicians and others. They all have given their sweat and blood," Kapoor told reporters.
When asked if Sonam Kapoor might act in the show, Anil said, " Sonam Kpaoor might do 24 show season 2. If she fits the character he will ask her and if she wants she can be the part of the show. But he also said just because of him Sonam will not do the show. Only of she thinks she wants to do it then only she will say yes."
Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors channel, revealed that Kapoor was nervous about the press conference today as he had earlier sent him a message, asking to push it off by a week. "We had to drop shows for '24'. We feel this show suits weekend slot," he added.
"I have had a lot of peaks in my career, but there are certain moments that you want to soak in and this is that moment. I feel this is the greatest moment of my life," said the actor.
"We thought weekend slot should be good. All the working people can come home and watch it. It was a strategy to get both Salman Khan (as 'Bigg Boss 7' host) and Anil Kapoor back to back," Raj Nayak, chief executive-Colors, told reporters at the press meet here.
The serial also features Mandira Bedi, Tisca Chopra, Neil Bhoopalam, Rahul Singh, while Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi and Rahul Khanna would also be seen in cameos. Kapoor plays the lead role of 'anti-terrorism unit' chief Jai Singh Rathod and the series will narrate the 24 hours of his life over 24 episodes. It is written by Rensil D'Silva and directed by Abhinay Deo of Delhi Belly' fame.
