So this must be what it felt like when British people saw Steve Carell as an American David Brent for the first time. India is adapting their own version of 24 in a licensing deal with Fox, and below we have the first video of the show in action.
It stars Anil Kapoor as the Indian version of Jack Bauer. He’s a big name in that country, and American audiences may know him as the host in Slumdog Millionaire. Here, he’s taking an even more aggressive role, and Jack Bauer has some big boots to fill.
To be clear, this is NOT Indian “ripping off” 24. This is an officially licensed version of the show, and countries do this all the time, America included. Especially America, in fact. Check it out for yourself below:
