Disney+ Hotstar Releases Motion Poster of Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor’s ‘The Night Manager’

Streamer Disney+ Hotstar on Monday launched the official poster of Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor’s OTT debut series ”The Night Manager”.

Dubbed as a high-octane thriller wrapped in lavish drama and picturesque sights, the series is the Hindi-language adaptation of John le Carre’s novel of the same title. The show is created and directed by Sandeep Modi and produced by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia. Priyanka Ghosh is co-directing the project, which will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar this year.

Roy Kapur said that he has been looking for a multi-layered character in a series with a complex narrative arc.

”When the platform approached me to play the title role in ‘The Night Manager’, I knew this was exactly who I had been looking for. My character Shaan is the kind of person who can effortlessly make people believe what he wants them to and that perfectly mirrors what we as actors strive to achieve with our craft.

”I am delighted that the Disney+ Hotstar team and Sandeep Modi gave me this opportunity to play such an exciting character and I look forward to bringing him to audiences in India and around the world,” the 37-year-old said the actor in a statement.

When Anil Kapoor read the script of the series, he fell in love with the character of Shelly Rungta, the actor said.

”Shelly is a powerful man, a philanthropist and a perfect balance of wit and evil with imperceptible menace just like the story of the show – a perfect blend of entertainment and great storytelling.

“I enjoyed working with some of the best from the industry and one of the leading OTT platforms – Disney+ Hotstar and am eagerly waiting to see the audience’s reaction to the show,” he added.

Gaurav Banerjee, Head – Content, Disney+Hotstar & HSM Entertainment Network, Disney Star, said that it is his hope that viewers will have fun watching the series.

”’The Night Manager’ in our ambition is the best of high stakes drama! Great actors, amazing locales and a rich plot with juicy twists,” he added.

Modi, who previously worked on Disney+ Hotstar’s critically acclaimed show ”Aarya”, said the team has tried to raise the bar with ”The Night Manager” in terms of storytelling, scale and technical finesse.

“It’s always exciting and nerve-wracking in equal measure to lead such a big show, and I’m super excited to bring this story of espionage, revenge and betrayal to the world,” he added.

”The Night Manager” will also have Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee and Ravi Behl in pivotal roles.
