Bollywood actor and producer, Anil Kapoor said, "It took me exactly a year to bring this concept to India. I was in search of the right time and the people to work with and this happened now with Colors and the ace director Abhinay Deo it seems just right.
There was a positive vibe which came to me from Mr Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors that made me finalise the deal with him in just 15mins".
He interestingly adds, "There is a huge co-incidence with the show. When I was signing the deal, it was Dusshera and the date was 24th October. After that we thought of announcing this deal and project with the media and unknowingly even that date was 24th November. In fact my birthday is 24th December. This has been the journey of '24' till now".
"Sometimes you are passionate about some projects which you eagerly want to work for and '24' is exactly that kind of project for me.
I want to do my best and give the best to my audience with the support of Raj Nayak and Abhinay Deo. When you have a great team, the work is always easier", he concludes.
Talking about the association Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors said, "This is totally a different project to ever hit the television industry. This project has the potential to be the 'Game Changer' of the industry. Colors is extremely happy and proud to take this project. Abhinay Deo, Anil Kapoor, Rensil, Manisha are a great team and I am sure we will rock".
Abhinay Deo, the ace director said, '24' in India is a creative project. It is very new and interesting. I and the entire team is putting their best to bring out the project as something never seen before on television. Skilled actors and pure entertainment will be the best features of the show. Our capabilities together shall bring this out".
Till the project '24' doesn't reach its end, Anil kapoor won't sign any movie neither will Abhinay Deo direct any.
