Watch: first trailer of Anil Kapoor's 24

Bollywood Actor Anil Kapoor's desi version of the international action drama show, 24, will soon air on the small screen. On August 22, the actor unveiled the first promo to the media. The show is not just Anil's TV debut; it's also the first time a popular film star is acting in a small-screen show.

Another first is that the show is being for Indian audiences from the American one.

"The canvas and scale of the show is like a film, so I can say I'll be shooting 24 films. The exposure on TV is massive and films can't give you that," says Anil. Director Abhinay Deo adds, "It will be like a one-hour film every week. The storytelling, star cast, execution, real locations, action, look and feel will all hopefully set new standards for TV shows." Here are some stills from the first promo.

Warning Movie first trailer

Well, the makers of Warning have stuck to the same old Hollywood formula of making an underwater thriller movie.

Produced by Anubhav Sinha and Sunil Lulla, this thriller has Bollywood Celebrities Santosh Barmola, Suzana Rodrigues and Manjari Fadnis in lead roles. While the trailer didn’t excite us, you take a look at it and tell us if you agree with us!

But his home production Krrish 3’s release (on November 4) is around the same time and he will be fully involved with its promotions. So we decided to start the third schedule of Bang Bang in mid-November,” said Siddharth.
