He told The Times of India: "The shooting will start soon. One of the sets is ready too. It's near Kurla. Rest is outdoor shoots. We will be shooting all over Mumbai.

"It's not a reality show, it's fiction... but such a show has never happened before and will surely be liked by the audience.

"Everything has a saturation point, then you come back and they will do well. There was a time when people just didn't want to see action.

"We underestimate the audience. If you give them something nice, they will lap it up. If you see, films like Barfi!, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara or even Race, today people are ready to accept if you give them something different but interesting.

"So I think you should go on making things you believe in and leave it for viewers to decide."

Kapoor will be shooting the show in his own studio space, which will be the anti-terrorism headquarters.

Delhi Belly director Abhinay Deol will be in charge of the production, which he says will be "Indianised" for domestic audiences.
