By Hindustan Times

New Delhi, March 4 -- Actor Anil Kapoor seems to be leaving no stone unturned to replicate the success of his adaptation of international series 24. He has been hand-picking his cast with director Abhinay Deo and ensuring that they take the finest actors on board.

One such actor was Adhir Bhatt, a theatre actor who will be a part of his entourage. "I was told about Adhir when Abhinay recommended that I go and check this actor out who was working in this play. I was at the theatre one evening when I saw this young man on stage and he was brilliant. I realised that only he could do justice to the role of one particular character that we were looking for," says Kapoor.

Adhir has also acted in movies like My Friend Pinto, Me Aur Hum, Mission Kashmir and Eklavya. Another cast member who has been roped in is actor Rahul Singh, famous for his critically acclaimed role in Zubeida. Belonging to the Royal family of Rajasthan, Rahul has done over 25 movies such as Delhi Belly, and Tere Bin Laden.
