The two-minute trailer opens with Aditya struggling his way over a snowy mountain and then switches to Anil Kapoor watching a raging conflict. After that, we witness Aditya’s spy character doing a second job as a hotel’s night manager and finally trying to break into Anil’s family.
Speaking about his role, Aditya Roy Kapur said,“I have always wanted to perform a multi-layered character in a series with a complex narrative arc, and when the platform approached me to play the title role in The Night Manager, I knew this was just the one I’d been looking for! My character Shaan is the kind of person who can effortlessly make people believe whatever he wants them to, and that perfectly mirrors what we as actors strive to achieve with our craft.”
Oscar-winning director Susanne Bier helmed the six-part British series. Along with Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, and Elizabeth Debicki, it also stars Tom Hiddleston in the lead role. The series premiered on February 21 in the UK after being adapted from the 1993 John le Carré book.
The drama series will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on February 17.
