You know what this show needs? Since it isn't in the same universe as 24 because of Kapoor playing the Kamistan President who died in S8.
This wouldn't necessarily mean that it is set in a different universe, since actors often play different roles in the same show.
An actual obsatcle is the fact that many characters seem to be direct equivalents of their American counterparts. Apparently, there's an Indian Jack Bauer, an Indian Teri Bauer, an Indian Nina Myers, and an Indian George Mason. Similar characters, different names. It would require a lot of suspension of disbelief to accept these "coincidences".
