A doomsday conspiracy is brewing; millions of lives are at stake. And the only man who can save the country is nowhere to be found! With Jai Singh Rathod at its helm, ‘24: Season 2’ is the ultimate battle to save innocent civilians from becoming collateral damage. As the nation wobbles on a medical terrorism plot of mass proportions, a pulse-pounding clash of power and respect will entangle an entire judicial and bureaucratic system. Recently, the show’s trailer was revealed in the presence of dignitaries from the entertainment industry and sponsors, along with the show’s most vocal supporter, Aamir Khan at a suburban theatre in Mumbai.
Revealing details about Season 2 of the show, actor and producer Anil Kapoor aka Jai Singh Rathod said, “ We have devised a complex plot which when combined with Jai Singh Rathod’s volatile relationships, strong instincts and adrenalin-fueled action, will be the perfect setting to foil a devastating terrorist plot. We are exploring different plots to enhance content reliability, shooting at multiple real locations outside Mumbai. Like last year, we have got on board a stellar line-up of the cast whose dedication towards the show has made this my best.”
‘24: Season 2’ picks up three years after the conclusion of Season 1. As the curtains rise, it’s evident that Jai Singh Rathod (Anil Kapoor) has isolated himself from the world to become a recluse on a self-imposed exile. His dark past has made him a fugitive from justice; and while his daughter Kiran (Sapna Pabbi) supports him, his son Veer (Akshay Ajit Singh), now a part of the Intelligence Bureau, does not. The iconic clock resets as druglord Haroon Sherchan (Sikander Kher) threatens to release a contagious airborne virus which will eradicate humanity, unless his brother Roshan (Ashish Vidyarthi) is released from prison. As radical groups and their potentially catastrophic plots unfold, the new ATU Chief – Shibani Mallick (SakshiTanwar) reaches out to Prime Minister Aditya Singhania (Neil Bhoopalam) to discuss preventive measures. Confident that only Jai Singh Rathod can prevent this brutality, Aditya Singhania calls upon him to ensure that reality is restored to its proper order.
Much like the first season, ‘24: Season 2’ has also created much buzz in the entertainment industry. All the members and artists are waiting to witness the blockbuster unfold before their eyes. One staunch supporter of Anil Kapoor and this season of 24: Season 2, is perfectionist Aamir Khan who stands deeply impressed by the exclusive rushes of the show.
Sharing his thoughts, Aamir Khan opined, “He’s the first person in the industry to decode the fine balance between film and television audience, and their viewing needs. The second season of 24 highlights the hazards of biological warfare and medical terrorism, a concept that reminds me of my experience while shooting for Sarfarosh. Having played a cop and an outcast in my films, I know exactly how difficult it is to pull these roles off convincingly, and Anil has done a fabulous job.”
The show has also earned support from the advertising community with Maruti Suzuki coming on board as the Presenting Sponsor and Oppo Mobiles being the Powered by Sponsor.
“For all those who thought that 24, in its first season, was a bundle of excitement, they will not know what hit them when the second season hits screens. We have utilized the international series as a benchmark to create some visually stunning content that, when coupled with the right mix of Indian-ness, promises to be an entertainment extravaganza like none other. We have taken on the socio-economic scenario of the country to make for a compelling narrative. The anticipation and fear of a geo-political threat and viral outbreak has been brought alive vividly. The fragility of relationships and their ever changing dynamics will touch a chord with the viewers, thereby heightening relatability,” remarked Abhinay Deo.
Offering action, thrill, suspense, drama and the exhilaration of solving complicated cases within a span of 24 hours, the show will feature a fast-paced storyline with amazing stunts, slickly-edited sequences and high-definition recording.
