London (ANI): After playing an evil TV host in the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor will now be seen fighting terrorists in the hit US TV show 24.
The 49-year-old actor will be playing the role of an Indian counter-terrorist cop, who teams up with Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer to take on terrorists.
"Anil would play Jack Bauer's counterpart in India," the Daily Star quoted a source as telling National Enquirer. "It's not known yet whether Anil will appear in just one episode of whether he'll be a recurring character. Either way the producers are very excited about having him onboard," the source added.
