The game-changing serial ’24’ is all set to go into Season 2. Yup, it’s time for Anil Kapoor to don the producer’s hat once again, even if it is to be done at the cost of his film offers.
Apparently, Anil has 6 major film offers this year. But he is tempted to again give priority to ’24’. Confirming his full-throttle plans for Season 2 Anil says, “My entire team is into pre-production. Only my own dates need to be worked out. I am in a bit of a fix.”
Last year, Anil said no to all movie offers in order to focus on ’24’. This year, the movie offers have piled up but Anil is in the mood for Season 2 of the series. Confesses the director, “There are quite a number of tempting film offers. But I haven’t said yes to them as yet. I need to work out my dates for Season 2 of ’24’. That’s a commitment I’ve made to myself. As a movie actor I’ve seen and done it all. Television is a new medium for me. And it’s very exciting.”
So would Anil end up doing no films in 2014? “I am already doing Anees Bazmee’s Welcome Back. So I’ve a major film coming up this year. As for more movies, they would depend on how much time Season 2 of ’24’ would need. You see, the first season was tougher with the entire machinery and logistics of television being new to me. A lot of the production hassles would be automatically lessened this time,” reveals Anil excitedly.
The one thing that is most certainly going to be seen in Season 2 of ’24’ is the core cast of Anil Kapoor, Tisca Chopra and Mandira Bedi. Rishi Kapoor and Jeetendra are likely to join the cast. “Let’s see how it goes. I am even more excited about Season 2,” reveals Anil who took a few days off this week to attend his brother Sanjay Kapoor’s brother-in-law’s wedding.
