Actors Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor have teamed up once more, but this time it’s for a web series, three years after Malang. Anil Kapoor debuted the suspenseful trailer for his forthcoming programme, The Night Manager, on Friday, January 20. The Hotstar Special is an authorised Hindi adaptation of the eponymous British television programme. Hugh Laurie’s original character will be played by Anil Kapoor, while Tom Hiddleston’s original role will be played by Aditya Roy Kapur. Sobhita Dhulipala also plays a significant role in the series.
Everything is crammed into the two-minute trailer. Aditya Roy Kapur portrays Shaan, who is hired by Tillotama Shome to bring Shelly to justice from the perilous world of arm-dealing run by a kingpin named Shelly Rungta who is still untraced and unharmed. The betrayal-laced story weighs heavily upon the cat and mouse dynamics between Shaan posing as the night manager and Shelly Rungta who is confident that he can’t be caught by anyone.
Sanjay Kapoor, Anil Kapoor’s brother, commented on the interesting trailer with the words “Superb!” Papaji too tasty!, Farah Khan wrote. However, one of the admirers remarked, “Looking fantastic Sir! Looking forward to your series stuff, and everyone looks great! Another one said, “The production value looks bomb(with fire emoji).” One of the fans also stated, “This one looks killer Sir!!!”
