Bollywood legend, Anil Kapoor has acquired the rights of hit US television drama ‘Prison Break’.
The news comes in light of Kapoor working on season two of ’24’, which he also bought the remake rights of. He also recently purchased the Indian remake rights of ‘Modern Family’.
The actor told Mumbai Mirror, “I always go with my gut feeling. I know people will like it; we will adapt it to suit Indian sensibilities. It’s one of my most favourite shows. I am truly excited. The show is about sibling love. It has just the right amount of emotions and of course some mind blowing action. In the past, films like Do Aankhen Barah Haath and Umar Qaid, which revolved around jailbreak, have been appreciated by the audience.”
Kapoor confirmed that he has only bought the remake rights of ‘Prison Break’ season one and a decision about future seasons will be made after the response to the first.
‘Prison Break’ is set to return for its fifth season in the US in early 2017.
