Anil Kapoor certainly changed the face of Indian television when he made his debut on the small screen with his thriller TV show 24, which was the Indian adaptation of an American show by the same name. And the actor is all set to return to do some dhamaakedaar action, we hear. However, let us tell you he is not coming up with season two of 24 yet. So? The first season that was aired over weekends earlier on Colors, will be relaunched tonight on Rishtey. It will be a daily airing from Monday to Saturday at 9 pm.

The thriller also features Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi, Tisca Chopra, Anita Raaj, Mandira Bedi and Neil Bhoopalam, among others.
