Malang Actors Aditya Roy Kapur & Anil Kapoor To Lead The Night Manager Series After Hrithik Roshan Back Out?

Mumbai, October 1 - For more than a year now, Disney+Hotstar's Indian adaptation of the British mini-series The Night Manager, has been waiting to see the light of the tunnel. However, things are finally looking all settled and the streamer has reportedly roped in Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor to lead this big-budget series.

Earlier, the spy drama series was supposed to be headlined by the Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan and he was reportedly paid a whopping 75 crores for the same. However, just before the series was set to go on floors, Hrithik walked out of the project, and it was put on hold indefinitely. It is reported that Roshan was not comfortable with the long schedules and decided to walk out.

And now, amid the uncertainty over the project, The Night Manager Indian adaptation is reportedly back on track and will be headlined by the Malang actors. Aditya Roy Kapur is said to be stepping into the shoes of Tom Hiddleston and play the role of a luxury hotel night manager and former Indian soldier while Anil Kapoor will reprise Hugh Laurie's role of an arms dealer who disguises himself to be a business tycoon.

The series will be produced by Preity Zinta in association with Banijay Asia while Sandeep Modi who co-directed Ram Madhvani's Emmay Awards nominated Aarya has been brought on board to direct this six-part. The makers are currently finalizing the rest of the principal cast for the series and expected to take it on floors in the early next year.

Meanwhile, Aditya will soon resume the last schedule of Ahmed Khan's action drama "Om: The Battle Within" and will then shoot for Thadam remake with Mrunal Thakur. Once he has done with both the films, he will head to his OTT debut series. On the other hand, Anil Kapoor currently has a Netflix thriller film "Thar", in which he stars alongside his son Harshvardhan Kapoor and Fatima Sana Shaikh.

Stay tuned...
