Sobhita Dhulipala is ready to bring energy and charisma to the big screen with The Night Manager, whose trailer came out on Friday. Anil Kapoor, her co-star and a seasoned actor, praised her and said that she is both beautiful and a "thinking actress."

Anil Kapoor stated during the trailer's debut, "When you talk about Sobhita, you talk about glamour; you talk about what a great body she has; that's the first impression you get because she is so pretty. But to get someone who is a thinking actress, where she's taken something God gave her and still wants to do and give her best, is a wonderful quality about her. She is terrific."

Sobhita's appearance in the series, where she seems to play a femme fatale, got everyone's attention when the trailer for the show came out on Friday. She adds glitz to the show, backed by her strong acting abilities.


The new series, which is directed by Sandeep Modi and will only be available on Disney+ Hotstar, has major roles for Aditya Roy Kapur, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee, and Ravi Behl. The series is an official Hindi version of The Night Manager by John le Carre. It was made by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia. On February 17, 2023, the series is scheduled to begin streaming.

When discussing the show, Anil said that the twists and surprises in spy thrillers make them so compelling, and with The Night Manager, the audience will witness something unexpected. One can never predict Shelly Rungta's next move; either he is the threat's trustworthy source or the evil in plain sight. The twist is that he eventually meets his match, and what happens next will keep the audience riveted. With Disney+ Hotstar, they are incredibly thrilled to make the series available to a global audience.

Aditya Roy Kapur also said that revenge and betrayal make it impossible to avoid high-stakes drama. The intriguingly complicated characters in The Night Manager enable this. His character Shaan is a perfect example of the proverb "quiet waters run deep." One can never tell what a person is thinking, but they always know that the wheels are rolling quickly, shifting the narrative from one unexpected direction to another. Working with some of the best actors and actresses in the Indian film industry, brought together by the creative team at Disney+ Hotstar, has been a wonderful experience for Aditya.

Sandeep Modi, the filmmaker, said that a complex plot and a suspenseful thriller combine flawlessly in The Night Manager to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, two of the industry's top actors and outstanding technicians from around the world, have given them all to make their vision for the series a reality. The Night Manager follows the adventures of Shaan and Shelly and their dynamics as they develop with each episode. It is a high-octane thriller packed with aspects of drama, conspiracies, and breathtaking sights. Also, working with Disney+Hotstar has been a great experience, and they hope this story will keep viewers interested and entertained.

In addition to The Night Manager, Sobhita has upcoming roles in movies like Monkey Man from Hollywood and the much-awaited Made in Heaven 2 from Amazon Prime Video. While Anil will appear opposite Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone in Siddharth Anand's next movie, Fighter, the latter will star Siddharth Anand.
