Anil Kapoor - Anil Kapoor Praised For Indian Version Of 24

Bollywood star Anil Kapoor's radical Indian Tv remake of U.S. action show 24 has been branded a runaway success.

The Slumdog Millionaire actor produced an Indian version of the crime series, which premiered in the country on Friday night (04Oct13), and several fellow stars have praised the show.

Director Kunal Kohli took to Twitter.com to write, "24 is a new dawn in Indian Tv. Can we pls pls (please) have more shows like this? enough saas (mother-in-law) bahu (daughter-in-law) sagas pls (sic)."

Actress Preity Zinta also tweeted, "Watched 24 on Tv tonight & was amazed at how wonderful its turned out! Congrats 2 (to) Anil Kapoor & Raj Nayak 4 (for) changing Indian Tv for ever."

Kapoor, who plays Jai Singh Rathod in a role similar to Kiefer Sutherland's famous character Jack Bauer in the series, reported earlier this year (13) that he redesigned the U.S. show to appeal to Indian audiences.

The actor also played Middle Eastern President Omar Hassan in the eighth and final season of the original 24 in 2010.
