Sonam Kapoor could not be a part of father Anil's debut TV venture '24' due to a busy movie schedule but the actor says he will make sure that his daughter appears in the next series.

Anil, who is upbeat about the spy thriller's next season, said he would request Sonam to take out some time from her hectic film commitments to be a part of his spy thriller.
