We had to re-invent 24, adapt it to Indian context - Rensil news. Anil Kapoor is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the desi version of the globally feted American series 24 turns out to be favourably comparable with the original

Anil Kapoor is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that the desi version of the globally feted American series 24 turns out to be favourably comparable with the original.

He has not only signed on three eminent Bollywood writers, recently he flew one of the original writers of 24, Patrick Harbinson, for brainstorming sessions with the writers of the desi 24.

Confirming these developments, Rensil D'Silva breaking his silence, said, "Yes, Patrick was here to collaborate with us on 24. It's not easy to adapt such an internationally-acclaimed thriller into an Indian context. We had to re-invent the original 24, adapt it to an Indian context more suited to Anil Kapoor than Keifer Sutherland who plays the role in the original serial. Each episode has to have its own rhythm and dynamics but every episode has to be worked on within the larger context. Because Episode 2 might have a link with Episode 22. It's hard work, very challenging but very satisfying."

Besides Rensil, there are two other writers on board. Says Rensil, "There are Bhavani Iyer and Priya Pinto also writing along with me. And Abhinay Deo is directing all the episodes. Television is a new medium for me. It's taken up quite a lot of my time."

Besides 24 for Anil Kapoor on television, Rensil has also been busy scripting Karan Johar's Student Of The Year which incidentally stars Varun Dhawan for whose dad, David Dhawan, Rensil scripted the aborted John Abraham starrer Hook Ya Crook.
