Anil Kapoor prefers to do different things than lose out on big films and big roles. The simple reason being his new passion and the new project ‘24’ that has got him a lot of accolades as being the best ever show made in Indian television history.
Anil, who will be seen in the Anees Bazmee directed ‘Welcome Back’ with John Abraham and Nana Patekar, has kept five movie offers on hold as she prepares to get into the shooting mode of the second season of ‘24’.
Sources inform that Anil has told the makers of all the five films that he will have to check on his availability as a producer as well as an actor for ‘24’ before he takes the plunge into other movies.
“Anil is happy that he has one major film this year. So he is not really bothered to have a slew of irrelevant films. At this juncture in his life and career, it is important that he picks and chooses what he wants to do,” says a source close to the actor confirming that the entire team from Anil’s camp is in the pre-production mode of the show that co stars Tisca Chopra and Mandira Bedi.
Actors like Rishi Kapoor and Mandira Bedi are however expected to join the cast of the show.
