Casting is on for the second season of Anil Kapoor’s Indian version of ‘24’ is on and Mandira Bedi is upset that the serial has no place for her now.
Tisca Chopra and Shabana Azmi were other big names on the show, but some interesting names are being tossed about this time.
The first season had a huge buzz about it, but the TRPs of the show were not something to write home about.
We are now being told that Anil Kapoor has managed to convince the elusive Akshaye Khanna to work on the show.
Akshaye Khanna has been rejecting offers for movies for a long while now. He last shot for a film ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’ in early 2011 and has been away from the arc lights since then.
Akshaye has been approached to play a very important character in the series.
Tabu who was last seen doing a superlative job in films like Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Haider’ , Nishikant Kamat’s ‘Drishyam’ and Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Talvar’, has also been approached for a very plum role on the show.
Tabu apparently is considering the offer.
