The filmmaker will be directing the updated Indian version for Anil Kapoor, who appeared in the US series.
Deol told Mumbai Mirror: "As a filmmaker, making 24 for India is a challenge. But then again, there's nothing that Hollywood can [do] and we can't. The way 24 was accepted in the country reaffirms the fact that the series can indeed be recreated for the Indian audience.
"The television industry has still not entered the zone where the audience would accept Hollywood storylines as is. It has to be Indianised. The tastes and sentiments of the Indian audience have to be kept in mind while recreating 24."
He added that he will only be working on one film release a year following his success with the controversial Delhi Belly.
"Big offers are not something that you want to say 'no' to. However, the script is also important. If a film doesn't work, people will blame the director for taking up the project," he said.
It was reported in December that Aamir Khan was looking for a new censorship certificate for the television broadcast of Delhi Belly.
