Anil Kapoor, best known as the game show host from Slumdog Millionaire, is set to produce and star in the Indian incarnation of the hit television show 24.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kapoor will play the equivalent ‘Jack Bauer’ character.

Kapoor, who guest starred in 24‘s final season, had this to say about the project:

“It will be a great honor for me to play Jack Bauer… Kiefer [Sutherland] has created an iconic character which has inspired me to bring the franchise to India. This will be my first foray to Indian television and I look forward to duplicating the standard of excellence Fox has so successfully created.”
