Anil, who made a cameo appearance in the original series as the head of a fictitious Islamic nation, said he is involved in every bit of the show's production.
"I am totally involved with the team which is putting together '24'. Right from it's planning to its pre-production, I have totally immersed myself into it. In any case I am a producer's son; being involved comes naturally to me.
"Even in my earlier years when I was acting for my home productions like 'Mr India', 'Haamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai', 'Loafer' or 'Judaai', I was always in the know-how of what was happening on the ground. I haven't let go off that trait," Anil told PTI. The 52-year-old will next be seen in Ekta Kapoor's production "Shootout At Wadala", directed by Sanjay Gupta.
The film also stars John Abraham, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor and Sonu Sood. Anil is all praises for the new breed of filmmakers saying that they understand the taste of the audience and deliver high quality cinema.
"Ekta, Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra are the kind of people who make our industry. Ekta is so hungry for good work; she is very hardworking and passionate. You need such people because they understand the industry is functioning so well.
They know how to deliver high quality cinema. "This is why when an opportunity like 'Shootout at Wadala' came my way, I went right into it. I was sure that this would be a correct combination," said Anil, who has begun shooting for the film.
