SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE star Anil Kapoor will take on terrorists for his next role, in hit TV drama 24.
Bollywood icon Kapoor will reportedly play an Indian counter-terrorist cop who teams up with Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer in the eighth season of the long-running programme, which is due to start shooting in April (09).
A source tells the National Enquirer, "Anil would play Jack Bauer's counterpart in India.
"It's not known yet whether Anil will appear in just one episode of whether he'll be a recurring character. Either way the producers are very excited about having him onboard."
In Slumdog Millionaire, Kapoor, 49, played the evil host in the Indian version of gameshow Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
