Bollywood’s Anil Kapoor to star in TV’s ’24’

Indian actor Anil Kapoor, a Bollywood star who was also in the Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire," is to take a leading role in the television thriller "24," the industry daily Variety said.

Kapoor, 49, will play a Middle East leader in the eighth season of the adventures of intelligence agent Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland. The series is due to be seen at the end of the year in North America.

In his 25 year career, Kapoor has played in more than 100 films but it is thanks to "Slumdog Millionaire" in which he plays a game show host that he has shot to international fame.

"Slumdog" won eight Oscars this year and has already scooped more than 21 times more at the box office than its 15 million dollar (11 million euro) budget.
