Colors’ new show 24 that is already making waves across the country, promises to be a store house of fresh and new talent. It seems that veteran actor Anil Kapoor, the show’s director – Abhinay Deo along with creative genius Rensil D’ Silva and the Colors Programming team led by Manisha Sharma are leaving no stone unturned to put together the best ensemble cast for the Indian adaptation of this international hit series. We already know that actors are making a beeline to be part of this prestigious project but in their hunt for the best talent for the show, Anil Kapoor and Abhinay Deo have signed up the maximum number of new faces. The show that will also mark Anil Kapoor’s debut on television will be launching four new and fresh faces that will make their big debut with this show.
We do not know the exact characters the debutants - Sapna Pabbi, Kiran Srinivas, Priyansh Jora and Aradhana Jagota will be playing but they sure are excited to be a part of the show.
Model turned actor and the chirpiest of the lot, youngster Sapna Pabbi considers herself lucky to be making her debut with this show. She says, “As a debutant, I think that I’m very fortunate to be a part of such a huge project. Also sharing screen space with a veteran like Anil Kapoor is a complete honour. I am already enjoying the experience.”
Talented actor from Karnataka, Kiran Srinivas who made his debut with Kannada film Haage Summane is set to make it big in the Hindi television industry with 24. With a number of film projects in his kitty and with his ongoing projects, this budding star chose 24 to start his TV career. He says that it is the perfect opportunity for him and continues, “I have been getting a lot of interesting offers but this one was something I could not refuse. This show will give me the opportunity to work with some of the finest actors of the industry who I can learn a lot from and am enjoying all the training that we are undergoing for the show.”
Another new kid on the block is 21-year-old mass communication student from Delhi, Priyansh Jora who is excited about working with director Abhinay Deo. He says, “After watching Delhi Belly, I really wanted to work with Abhinay Sir. He is a superb director and making my debut under his direction will definitely help me grow as an actor, after all its a journey to excel."
The show will also launch newcomer Aradhana Jagota. This model-turned actor has really worked hard to get the role. She says, “There is a stiff competition in Indian television industry today and one has to work really hard to make the right kind of debut and get noticed. Before auditioning for 24, I worked on my acting skills to do complete justice to the role that I was auditioning for. I just hope all my hard work gets noticed and I am able to give my best for this show. Also I have grown up watching Anil Kapoor in movies and it was like a dream come true working on his project”.
The suave actor along with Abhinay Deo has handpicked this new cast and are training them on orientation and role play. So looks like we just have to wait and watch these newcomers surprise us with their skills.
