Anil Kapoor enjoys working with an ensemble cast and will be portraying a strong benefactor in the upcoming streaming series The Night Manager. Anil has been in many ensemble movies over the years, such as Dil Dhadakane Do, Salaam-e-Ishq, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Darna Zaroori Hai, and the Race series.

When IANS asked the actor about his passions while working on ensemble projects, he said that working on a show for so long makes it inevitable that many bonds and good memories will be made. They have inside jokes that must be kept private. They laughed a lot together and also experienced some emotional moments. The actor had a great time working with people like Aditya Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Sandeep Modi, Priyanka Ghose, Saswata Chatterjee, Tillotama Shome, and Ben Jasper.

Anil continued by saying that everyone was amazing. There will be many enjoyable and poignant moments when one shares a story for more than a year with a friend. There will be a lot of rage, a lot of exasperation, and a lot of jokes. Overall, it was a really rewarding and creatively fulfilling experience.

In an interview with The Bombay Times, Aditya talked about taking over the role that Tom Hiddleston had played before. He said that both Tom and the series are his favourites. The part is intricate and thrilling, and the show is well-written. The actor is thrilled to have the chance to really dive into that job. It was crucial for him to make his own entrance into the role because Tom has portrayed it so wonderfully. The difficulty in doing something that has already been done is giving that portion of it its own purpose and identity. Aditya is hoping they were able to accomplish that here.

Anil will be perceived as a weapons dealer who poses as a successful businessman. Aditya will be portrayed as a former soldier and the night manager of a five-star hotel. Sobhita has taken over the role of Angela Burr, who was played by Olivia Colman. Angela Burr was the person who found Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), the main character, a job.

The Night Manager is a high-octane thriller starring Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead role that is produced by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia, developed and directed by Sandeep Modi, and co-directed by Priyanka Ghosh. The show will debut on Disney+ Hotstar soon.
