Mumbai, March 09: The success stories surrounding Oscar winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ just seems to be getting bigger and better by the day. After Freida Pinto, the lesser-known Indian actress went to rule the world, rubbing shoulders with legends; it’s the turn of Anil Kapoor now, who is all smiles owing to his ‘Millionaire’ association. The actor will soon be seen playing one of the leading roles in popular American TV show ‘24’.

According to sources, Anil has been roped in for the new season of the show. The season that is set to begin in May, would mark the actor’s debut on international TV. A news daily quoted a friend of the actor saying, “The modalities are being worked out. Anil is very kicked about this offer."

The show has won a numerous number of gongs including the much renowned Emmy and Golden Globe accolades.

An action drama TV series, ‘24’ depicts a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer, who works with the US government as it fights domestic threats.

With Anil climbing on the Telly bandwagon, it seems he is ready to carry his small screen ‘Slumdog’ avatar forward.
