Sikander Kher says he was skeptical of doing a negative role in 24.

Actor Sikander Kher, who will be seen in season two of popular TV show 24 starring industry veteran Anil Kapoor, was initially skeptical to take up the project. “When I was offered the show initially I was not sure. But when I heard the role I just liked it. It is a great role,” Sikander told PTI.

Sikander, who plays a negative role in 24, is the new addition to the season two of fast-paced action series. “For me, it’s a new project (referring to ’24’). The pressure would be there to the makers and producers. My job was to do my part to the best of my ability. I have not had huge hits in my career, so for me, it’s to perform. I don’t think of pressure,” Sikander said.

To get into the skin of the character the “Woodstock Villa” actor learnt Gorakhpuri language to get his accent right. “I am playing a real-life character then it makes sense to study and pick up things. But this role (in “24”) was fictitious… in that case I try to figure out the character
in my head and then whatever comes out naturally I do that,” he added.

The 34-year-old actor knows Anil Kapoor, who is one of the protagonists of 24, since his childhood days. “When I was a kid going to his house very often for dinner and watching films. I was a big fan of him,” he added. The show also featuring Sakshi Tanwar, Ashish Vidyarthi, Neil Bhoopalam and Sudhanshu Pandey goes on air from July 23 on Colors channel.
