Rahul Khanna has had a successful stint on TV last year with the thriller show 24. Grapevine has it that because of his role in Anil Kapoor’s version of the international television series, Rahul has bagged another new TV show.

A little birdie informs us that the show is a US based prime time show called The Americans. It is a period drama series which is set in the Cold War era of the 1980s. It has been created by Joe Weisberg, a former CIA officer. Our khabroo informed us that the storyline revolves around two KGB spies, who are living in Washington DC posing as a married American couple. Rahul would be playing the role of Yousaf, an Oxford educated Pakistani intelligence officer. His character would have access to key information which will be of interest to the KGB. Speaking to a leading daily Rahul confirmed jubilantly, “I am overjoyed to be part of this and work with such an accomplished team. Who knew espionage was such fun?”

Now only time will tell whether he would be able to continue his good run on television. After all, when movie offers seem to have dried up, that is the best that he can do, hai na peeps?
