Anil Kapoor will be joined by seasoned actors like Sakshi Tanwar, Sapna Pabbi, Sikander Kher, Shabana Azmi and Ronit Roy for the second season of the hit TV series 24.

"You are playing a character. It's just a job. I don't get nervous. I think we were convinced about it and the channel (Colors) gave us the freedom to do it. So we did it."

24 will be aired on Colors from 22 July.
Meanwhile, Anil has also signed on for an Anees Bazmee's film opposite his nephew Arjun Kapoor.
