So far only two episodes of Anil Kapoor's maiden TV show '24' have unfolded on the small screen and it was enough to impress filmmaker Kunal Kohli who feels that the suspense thriller deserves all the awards.
Kohli, who directed movies like 'Mujhse Dosti Karoge!', 'Hum Tum' and 'Fanaa', also believes that it is time to revamp television, which is dominated by saas-bahu sagas.
"'24' has me hooked. Deserves all the awards this year, except best jethani-devrani. Re-tweet if you agree that Indian TV needs a major re-haul," Kohli posted on Twitter.
He had previously tweeted about the show, saying: "'24' is new dawn on Indian television."
'24', the Indian version of the popular US suspense thriller of the same name, went on air Friday on Colors. The show stars Anil as Jai Singh Rathod, the Indian version of Jack Bauer. He is joined by the likes of Tisca Chopra, Anupam Kher and Mandira Bedi in the cast.
Well-known actress Shabana Azmi will also be seen in a cameo in the show.
"I don't believe Indian audiences only want to see shows about family sagas. Why then are only those made? It's like a national epidemic," he wrote.
