Anil Kapoor, who acted in US spy thriller TV series 24, has obtained the rights to make the Hindi version of the series. The script work has been supervised by Abhinav Deo of Delhi Belly fame. The shooting for the episodes starts soon. The series in Hindi, yet to be titled, will have 8 seasons of 24 episodes each.
The direction of these 192 episodes will be shared by Rakeysh Mehra, Apoorva Lakhia and Priyadarshan, while Abhinav Deo continues to be the chief of direction, and will also direct some episodes. This arrangement is made as one director cannot be fixed for the series because of the film commitments. Moreover, the episodes directed by four different directors will avoid the series being monotonous in taking and style of presentation.
Anil Kapoor will star as the protagonist in the series. A final take will be taken on his look in October. The regular shooting will start in December.
