If you thought the thrill Anil Kapoor’s home production 24 brings in your living rooms every weekend, is any less, then this might heighten some for you. The crime show, which is the Indian adaptation of American TV series by the same name, was brought on our home screens by Anil Kapoor’s company. Its first season, which aired around three years back was well accepted by the Indian audience, courtesy its gripping screenplay and leading television and film actors making an appearance on the show. The second season is no exception. We have already seen names like Anupam Kher, Mandira Bedi, Tisca Chopra, Ashish Vidyarthi, Rahul Khanna and Richa Chadda coming on board till now. And this weekend, we are set to see two more names joining this elite list of actors – Shabana Azmi and Ronit Roy.
Veteran actress Shabana Azmi will be reprising her role of Abhilasha Grewal from the previous season. Abhilasha has been the ATU Chief when Jai Singh Rathod went missing in Season 1. She is a focused and no non sense officer dedicated to her work, and her character is based on Alberta Green, from its original American series. While Shabana Azmi will reappear on the show, actor Ronit Roy will join the cast for the first time. He will play the guest character of Roy, who is working with Abhilasha at the ATU.
We will see that Abhilasha and Roy, are called by the Home Ministry to investigate about the unauthorized undercover mission planned and executed by Jai Singh Rathod. Just to remind you, Abhilasha has a record of animosity with Jai and the bitterness might just affect the investigation. So we can expect things to get slightly tensed up on this weekend’s episodes.
