In this Indian edition of Abhinay Deo's 24-tele series, Mandira will be seen donning the role of a hardcore cop, who is a Government agent. However, looking back at history, where by the actress was popularly known for her noodle-strapped and backless dress code, her new cop character does not provides her with an opportunity to flaunt too many flashy clothes.
Regarding the same, Mandira says, "I am playing a Government agent. The entire first season is just based on 24 hours. Therefore, there are not too many dress changes as you will see."
Moreover, the actress further added, "Being a cop, I have to be dressed in a decent way. So there is no question of me wearing short and strappy clothes. I am wearing a lot of clothes in 24." (Laughs)
When asked about her experience of working with the Bollywod star Anil Kapoor, Mandira went on to say, "Whenever I come on the sets of 24, and if Anil sir is around, there is a high level of energy in the atmosphere. We actors usually get tired between the shots and play with our phones but when Anil sir is on the sets, there is a certain enthusiasm and spring in the air. In fact, there is a keenness and desire to learn endlessly and give the best we can. Anil Kapoor has been truly inspiring for all of us."
