According to Aditya Roy Kapur, creating a character for a series is similar to creating one for a film. The Night Manager, a book by John le Carre, is being made into an Indian series. The actor said he chose the project because he thought the main character was interesting enough to take a chance on.
Talking about the same, Aditya told PTI that on OTT, the acting process hardly changes at all. The work is much the same, and he has always wanted to engage in OTT outings. The actor was looking for a chance, and all he needed were the right circumstances, and The Night Manager seemed to be the best choice.
Hugh Laurie, Elizabeth Debicki, Olivia Colman, Tom Hiddleston, and other notable actors played major roles in the 2016 television series that was based on the book.
When the Indian version was handed to him, the 37-year-old actor admitted he had not watched the British series but that he still wanted to be a part of the universe the production team was trying to create.
Aditya didn't see the first episode. He enjoyed it when he subsequently saw it. The actor did not hesitate, and he yearned to join this fantastic team and take part in the world they were building. It was obvious to him. Aditya added that the fact that Anil Kapoor was already involved in the project was a big bonus.
Aditya defined his character in The Night Manager as a man with a strong moral core. He added that the persona of Shaan Sengupta is intriguing. As his past is slowly made known to the audience, it is difficult to understand him. It was intriguing to learn that he had experienced trauma. He has a solid moral foundation, and his character appreciates fine things.
Sandeep Modi conceived and directed the high-octane thriller television series, which was made by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia. As co-director, Priyanka Ghosh is responsible.
Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Saswati Chatterjee, and Ravi Behl round out the cast. On February 17, The Night Manager will make its Disney+ Hotstar debut.
