Anil Kapoor to join hackers meet in Delhi
Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, who is returning as Jai Singh Rathore with the second season of 24, is all set to join cyber security specialists or ethical hackers community at Ground Zero Summit here on Thursday.
“I am playing anti-terrorist unit chief. The whole show is about hackers, RAW, national security. I just wanted to get as much knowledge as possible so I am coming to meet the hackers and interact with them. It will be very exciting to meet them,” Kapoor told PTI in an interview.
Kapoor, 57, made his television debut with the Indian adaptation of the hit international TV series 24, which was aired on Colors channel.
“First season was about trying to protect the prime minister of the country but second season is more about protecting the nation,” Kapoor said. He is special guest at the Ground Zero Summit 2015 being organised by Indian Infosec Consortium— a group of ethical hackers.
“Threat to national security has moved to the digital dimension. Terrorist organisations have turned social networks and online forums into recruitment hotbeds and propaganda mechanisms.
“We need a security apparatus in the digital space to address this threat. Hackers are the face of this digital army.”
