While the first season of the Indian version of ’24’ had a great start, Anil Kapoor is all set for the second season. Though his remake is filled with popular Indian TV stars and film celebrities, this time around the actor has decided to bring Mary Lynn Rajskub, who played the role of the CTU analyst Chloe O’Brian in the original series, in the Hindi remake of the series.
Mary Lynn will be doing a special appearance in the Hindi version of ’24’. Excited about being a part of the Indian remake, Mary added that she requested Anil Kapoor (producer of ’24’) to sign her for the series. In fact, she had asked him if she could retain her character as Chloe in the Hindi series but Anil had denied it. Now, Mary expressed happiness when Anil finally agreed to cast her in a small yet important role in the series. The two (Anil and Mary) met on the sets of the English series ’24’ wherein Anil shot for 15 episodes with the actress. Anil played the role of Omar Haasan, president of a fictitious nation, Islamic Republic of Kamistan, in the original series.
However, Mary’s role in the Hindi series is still being kept under wraps. Currently, the second season of ’24’ is in the pre-production stage and will go on floor by the end of this month or July.
