Fiji Sun - - Showbiz - Feed­back: jy­otip@fi­

Af­ter “24” and “Mod­ern Fam­ily”, Bol­ly­wood ac­tor­pro­ducer Anil Kapoor has now ac­quired the rights of an­other Amer­i­can TV se­ries “Prison Break”. “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,“Anil said in a state­ment.

“Prison Break”, which is now gear­ing up for its fifth sea­son, re­volves around two broth­ers. One has been sen­tenced to death for a crime he did not com­mit while the other de­vises an elab­o­rate plan to help him es­cape and clear his name. Shar­ing more about the show, Anil said: “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.” Anil is cur­rently busy shoot­ing for the sec­ond in­stall­ment of “24”.

Will he be a part of “Prison Break”?

“I’d love to be a part of the show but my en­tire fo­cus is on“24” right now. Do­ing two shows won’t be pos­si­ble but who­ever comes on board has to be phys­i­cally fit. I have a few names in mind. We will be­gin cast­ing soon. It will be made on the same scale as ‘“24”.” Anil’s pro­duc­tion house has bought the rights to sea­son one of “Prison Break”.
