A recent article in Hindustan Times (the largest Indian newspaper) claims that Anil Kapoor has been trying unsuccessfully to make a 24 film.
“At the time of buying the remake rights of 24 for TV, Anil tried to convince the American makers to grant him the film remake rights too, but they turned down the request. Even now, he is keen on adapting the TV show’s storyline into a film,” says an insider close to the actor.
Kapoor starred as Omar Hassan in the eighth season of 24 and later acquired the television rights in November 2011 to adapt the series for Indian audiences. The second season is currently in pre-production with filming set to begin later this year.
