Anil Kapoor makes his debut on American television
Explaining the reason for playing the middle-eastern character, Anil says, “I am very clear that I won’t play Indian characters in international projects unless they’re really special. I’ve told my agent to seek out parts that are not culture-specific, but have character.”
In a recent interview to Fox News, Anil said, “It’s the first time that I’m doing television. I’ve been doing feature films for around 30 years. Not only was I excited that I was doing 24, but I was also anxious and nervous that I was doing something for the first time in my life.”
“People told me, `No matter what happens, you have to be on 24! My son, my daughter, my friends. 24 is very popular in India. Five or six years back, I was introduced to it by my colleagues who would watch it in their trailers,” added Kapoor.
24, that went on air in 2001, is the second-longest running espionage series, after the Mission: Impossible series.
