Anil Kapoor likely to bring another American show to India

Having adapted the American terrorism drama “24” and shown interest in making a TV version of “Modern Family” for viewers here, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor has hinted at working on yet another American show.

Kapoor bought the official rights of “24”, the first season of which was launched in India in 2013. He has also collaborated with the makers of Emmy-winning series “Modern Family” for television viewers here.

“There is something else as well that I am doing after ‘Modern Family’. We are working on it. I can’t reveal anything at the moment,” Kapoor told PTI.

In 2008, the 59-year-old actor was seen in “Slumdog Millionaire”, a British drama film directed by Danny Boyle. He was also seen in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” (2011), an American action spy film.

To a query on when he would do another Hollywood film, he said, “Give me a month’s time, there is something that will be announced.”

Following an overwhelming response to the first season of “24” from Indian viewers, the “Mr India” actor is now working on the second season of the show.

“When you do something that has international aesthetics you raise the bar, as you have to be appealing not only to Indian audiences but those who stay outside India,” he said.
