Anil Kapoor is confident that the audiences will relate to his character in his debut TV production "24" and it will cement his place in the hearts of viewers because of its realism.

Anil plays Jai Singh Rathod, the chief of anti-terrorist Unit of India, in "24".

"My character is such that people will identify with it. He is a common man, he is a hero but a flawed hero. He is like any other man. Every man today is trying to balance between his family and his professional commitments. He wants to keep both parties happy and that is tough," the 56-year-old said here Thursday at the launch of the show.

"My character loves his country, He is very patriotic and trying to save the future prime minister of the country, while on the other hand his family is also falling apart. So, I feel people will see my character as real and it will cement it's place in their hearts and the show also," added the actor known of hit movies "Mr. India", "Virasat".

Anil, who started his stint in the international cinema with "Slumdog Millionaire", also featured in the eighth season of the American version of "24".

He said that the Indian adaptation of the superhit American TV series by the same name has been adapted according to Indian sensibilities.

"The story has been successful all over the world and we have adapted it in such a manner that it could hit the sensibilities of the Indian audiences, so they like it," said the actor.

Being directed by Abhinay Deo, the show will go on air in October on Colors TV and the first season will have 24 episodes.

It also stars Mandira Bedi and Tisca Chopra, while Anupam Kher, Rishi Kapoor and Boman Irani will make cameo appearances.
